INTRODUCTION Feed is the major input in poultry production. Supply of high quality feed is must to obtain optimum performance. Presence of mycotoxins in feed is one of the major constraints in maintain feed quality because the mycotoxins are widely present in feedstuffs around the world and may affect production even in very low concentration. The most widespread and in most studied group of myco...

Saccharomyces cerevisiae (SC) has considerable binding capacity for aflatoxin (Galvano et al., 2001). Mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) derived from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was also reported to have high binding capacity (95%) for aflatoxin (Mahesh and Devegowda, 1996). The present investigation was undertaken to test the efficacy of SC and MOS in alleviating aflatoxicosis in broiler chickens. This work was carried out in my laboratory and is the original piece of research work undertaken in the project "Management of Mycotoxicosis in Poultry".

Has any work been undertaken using fructo-oligosaccharides?

Ken Dods , I have conducted trials on Saccharomyces cerevisiae and mannan oligosaccharides only.
