Category: Mycotoxin binders
The development of mycotoxin binders combined with hepatic and intestinal conditioners pronutrients, such as Alquermix LN, provides solutions to the mycotoxin problem in animal production.
Previously, we have described the patented method of obtaining Alquerfeed Antitox and its mechanism of action. Thanks to this obtaining process, Alquerfeed Antitox has unique properties as a mycotoxin binder, which are all differential compared to any other type of mycotoxin binder.
Biovet has developed a patented molecule called Silicoglycidol, highly effective as a mycotoxin binder, which makes up the also patented Alquerfeed Antitox binder.
Silicates, a union of silicon and oxygen, also called silicic acid salts, are the most abundant minerals in the earth’s crust. They occupy 92% of the continental surface, constituting basic components of rocks, sands and clays.
Fumonisin, deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone were the most prevalent mycotoxins worldwide during the last part of 2020 and this prevalence is expected to continue during the first quarter of 2021.
El pasado 21 de enero, el equipo técnico de Biovet S.A. realizó una videoconferencia técnica para sus distribuidores y clientes de Bangladesh, Irlanda, Sudáfrica, Perú, Honduras, México, Panamá y Colombia, entre otros países. En la jornada online se abordaron las consecuencias ocasionadas por la contaminación por micotoxinas y las propiedades fundamentales que debe tener un captador de micotoxinas para ser altamente eficaz en la prevención de la micotoxicosis.
On November 20th, a technical and commercial team of Biovet S.A. conducted a videoconference on the incidence of mycotoxin in the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Specifically, the event was attended by distributors and customers from Russia, Ukraine, and Azerbaijan, as well as representatives from Georgia.
Despite the presence of each mycotoxin varies depending on the region, DON was the most prevalent mycotoxin globally in 2020, according to the analysis conducted in different geographical areas.
Fungi and mycotoxins represent and important challenge in the way to achieve the performance objectives in farms, due to the negative effects they have on animals. To prevent mycotoxin consequences, it is essential to apply methods with a double focus: against mycotoxins and against the fungi that produce them.
Every year, mycotoxins have a great economic impact on animal production because they cause great productive losses. Their presence in the feed depends on several factors, such as the origin of the grain or the weather conditions during the cultivation and harvest, for this, mycotoxin contamination is different depending on the season and year.
