MINIMIZING MYCOTOXINS IN ANIMAL FEED WITH CLARIANT'S FIXAT™ OPTIMUM

The presence of mycotoxins in feed leads to significant decreases in the animal's performance parameters such as weight gain and feed conversion. It also causes organ damages or reproduction issues resulting in considerable revenue losses in animal production. Mycotoxins formed by mould fungi occur in up to 25% of the global feed production, while rapid climate change, drought, floods and other natural disasters worsen the situation.

Clariant has developed a solution to significantly reduce the threat of poisonous Afatoxins in feed.

  • Feed Additives

    Clariant's TOXISORB™ product line is a range of specially developed feed additives that help bind fungal mycotoxins and help prevent them from being resorbed into animals bodies, where they may produce damaging effects. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, 25% of feed worldwide is contaminated with different mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are poisonous compounds which are formed by various mold fungi belonging to the species of Aspergillus, Penicillium and Fusarium. These globally found fungi grow on grain and crops and can occur either before/after harvest, during storage, on/in the food itself often under warm, damp and humid conditions. Clariant TOXISORB™ product line is a range of specially developed feed additives that help bind fungal mycotoxins and help prevent them from being resorbed into animals bodies, where they may produce damaging effects.

  • FIXAT™ Optimum

    Using FIXAT™ Optimum can significantly reduce the threat of poisonous Aflatoxins in feed.The presence of mycotoxins in feed leads to significant decreases in the animal’s performance parameters such as weight gain and feed conversion. It also causes organ damages or reproduction issues resulting in considerable revenue losses in animal production. HOW TO SOLVE THE MYCOTOXIN PROBLEM?With mycotoxin adsorbents!Mycotoxin adsorbents and binders remove mycotoxins from animal feed by fixing them on their surface. FIXAT™ Optimum interacts electrostatically with the polar groups of the mycotoxin molecule.Even in the tough conditions of the animal’s digestive tract, the toxin remains tightly bound and can be excreted without causing damages.Our adsorbents consist of Bentonite-a precious clay mineral that features particular swelling properties and strong binding powers.

  • TOXISORB™ Premium

    Due to its open spatial structure and a combination of hydrophilic and hydrophobic surface properties, almost up to 90 % of the presently known toxins can be adsorbed by TOXISORB Premium.Even the large Endotoxin and Enterotoxin molecules that are produced by bacteria in the digestive tract can be removed. These remarkable properties of TOXISORB™ Premium are caused by a unique composition of natural minerals and a sophisticated production process.Note: No mycotoxin binder claims are made in USA, EU and Canada

  • TOXISORB™ Classic

    Aflatoxin is the most harmful fungal toxin and can be fatal even in very small doses. It can enter the animal’s blood stream through the digestive tract and is ingested by humans via the consumption of meat, milk and eggs.With its dense, layered structure and extremely large negatively charged surface area TOXISORB™ Classic can bind the toxin molecules permanently before they can harm the animal’s organism. The immobilized toxins are removed from the animal´s gut with the excrement and no longer remain in the food chain. Typical symptoms caused by mycotoxinsMycotoxinsSolutionsImmuno suppression, internal bleedings, damage of liver Aflatoxin B1 TOXISORB™ ClassicDisease of the central nervous system, diarrhoea, spasms ErgotTOXISORB™ ClassicNote: No mycotoxin binder claims are made in USA, EU and Canada
