This study was conducted to demonstrate the impact of yeast fractions on reducing aflatoxicosis on broiler. The effects of probiotic (Toyocerin) on toxicity of aflatoxin were evaluated using control and six dietary treatments on broiler chickens from 0-6 weeks of age. Aflatoxin (200, 400 and 800 μg /kg) significantly reduced feed intake, weight gain and feed efficiency. Significant interaction between aflatoxin and probiotic were observed for their additive effects on body weight, feed intake, feed efficiency, apparent digestibility of protein
