A study on experimentally induced aflatoxicosis on the carryover of aflatoxin B1 into eggs and liver tissue of white leghorn hens

Author(s):
BV Sudhakar
Abstract:
A feeding trial was conducted with 90 commercial White Leghorn layer hens to study the effect of experimentally induced aflatoxicosis on the carryover of aflatoxin B1 into the eggs and liver tissues. The experiment consisted of five treatments with 0.00, 0.75, 1.50, 2.25 and 3.00 mg/kg (ppm) of dietary aflatoxin. These levels were obtained by including Aspergillus infested rice in the control diet. The experiment was conducted for three 28-day periods from the onset of 50% egg production. Traces of aflatoxin or their metabolites were detected in eggs and livers from all the treatments except control groups.
