Your Questions Answered: Upcoming Mycotoxin Webinar

02 February 2017

GLOBAL - Our upcoming live webinar on Mycotoxin On-Site Testing and Survey Results scheduled for February 8, 2017 is quickly approaching. Along with hundreds of people having already registered, we received many questions via the online sign-up form.

Here we answer four relevant questions, as a preview of what’s sure to be a great webinar session that includes interactive Q&A with experts from BIOMIN and Romer Labs.

Question 1: “How does Mycofix® prevent vitamin adsorption from feed?” asks Methni from Tunisia.

The issue here is referred to as unspecific binding, meaning that the adsorptive material binds to vitamins and other nutrients—preventing them from being used by animals and effectively reducing the quality of the feed.

The bentonite present in Mycofix® was carefully selected in an extensive project involving the BIOMIN Research Center and IFA Tulln. More than 300 substances including different clays, mannan oligosaccharides (MOS), hydrated sodium aluminosilicates (HSCAS), etc. were tested through a series of checkpoints that involved stability and adsorption tests at different binder/toxin concentrations, toxicity of material, binding specificity, and adsorption in simulated gastrointestinal conditions.
