Introduction Mycotoxins are toxic metabolites that synthesized by a variety of fungal species and can be produced in feed, feedstuffs and foods in suitable conditions, such as moisture, temperature, oxygen and duration (Saleemi et al., 2017). The most common mycotoxin found in poultry feed and foodstuffs is aflatoxins (AFs) because it is produced rapidly and more toxic than the others (Oguz, 2016...

Good study.

Excellent study.
Indeed inclusion of an effective mycotoxin binder is necessary to reduce the risks of aflatoxins in poultry. Unfortunately, poultry farmers seem to think that these are unnecessary and any binder like activated charcoal or other common clays can do the work to minimise the extra cost of additives in a feed.
They use the toxin binders only as a measure when things fail. The mindset must change and the inclusion of a toxin binder is absolutely necessary as insurance.
