B.I.O.Tox®

Mode of action

In the recent years mycotoxin contamination of crops has become an important economical problem for the feed industries. The U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) estimates that worldwide about 25 % of crops are affected annually with mycotoxins [Witlow L.W. et al., 2010]. Prevention is the main target, but unfavourable weather conditions  do  not  always  make  prevention  feasible. Therefore,  various  mycotoxins  are  frequently  found in  contaminated  commodities.  In order  to  obtain complete decontamination, a blend of binding agents is clearly indicated. B.I.O.Tox® is such a blend. Each agent overcomes the adverse effect of one or two mycotoxins. The compounds trap the toxic substances within the matrix of sorbents and electrostatic attractions. In addition to the high affinity for mycotoxins, components of B.I.O.Tox® resist desorption, even in highly acidic conditions.

This is an important feature for the product, since acidity is inevitable in the digestive tract. In order to avoid economical losses caused by mycotoxin presence, B.I.O.Tox® is recommended when:

  1. Visibly moldy feeds or raw materials are used
  2. Raw materials or feeds are mycotoxin-contaminated, in order to lower their adverse effects on animal health.

3.An  increased  incidence  of  appetite  depression, vomiting, slow growth, low milk production, sudden drop in egg production, reduced fertility, hemorrhage and immune depression is abserved.

B.I.O.Tox® application results in:

  • binding of aflatoxins, ochratoxins and Fusarium toxins (zearalenone, deoxynivalenol, T-2 toxin, fumonisins)
  • prevention of adverse effects of mycotoxins
  • a higher performance of animals
