The “natural” toxin in feed – KNOW IT TO AVOID IT
Mycotoxins are omnipresent in high moisture feed ingredients and under practical conditions, no poultry feed is free of any mycotoxin. Their magnitude of toxicity depends not only on their type and concentration, but also on the age, body weight and immune response of birds. They exhibit considerable pharmacological effects even at very low concentrations (ppb) and their toxicity may be further enhanced by subsequent metabolism in vivo, particularly by the liver. Most of the production problems that seem to be inexplicable are mostly attributed to the mycotoxins and their adverse effects are sometimes many fold indicating a clear and persistent danger.
Impact of Mycotoxins
- Direct health challenges (mycotoxicosis, reduced immune response)
- Reduced feed intake
- Reduced nutrient absorption (excretion of lipids)
- Reproduction problems (loss in fertility, hatchability)
- Residues in meat / egg
“There is no safe level of mycotoxins, however, permissible levels in poultry feeds are decided on the basis of the economic impact of a given level of contamination”.
Why VINSORB BIO?
A unique combination of high grade mycotoxin adsorbents, mold inhibitors and anti-fungal elements along with lipotropic agents makes VINSORB – BIO a very effective binder for high levels of toxins and where the nature of the toxin is unknown or its presence uncertain.
- Mortality reduction
- Improved feed intake
- Increased weight gain
- Better FCR
- Increased egg production
- Mycotoxin Adsorption
Rapid Detoxification – Mycotoxins must be reduced within 30 minutes of digest a being solubilized.
Multiple toxin binding – Binds wide range of mycotoxins without impairing nutrient bioavailability.
- Liver Protection
Combats secondary effects of mycotoxins – Aflatoxins decrease ability to metabolize fat, protein and starch. The fatty infiltration of liver due to aflatoxins is also prevented due to lipotropic agents present in VINSORB – BIO.
- Mold Inhibition
Mold Inhibition – Buffered organic acids and elemental copper in VINSORB – BIO enhances pre-feeding effectiveness by controlling major mycotoxin producing fungi in the feeds.
- Feed Mill Friendly
Low inclusion rate yet easy to mix uniformly.
No affinity for vitamins, minerals, etc. hence, no dilution or destruction of nutrients.
- HSCAS, Phyllosilicates – Inorganic mycotoxin adsorbents with high affinity for aflatoxins
- MOS – Organic mycotoxin adsorbent with multi-toxin binding ability
- Activated Charcoal – High grade activated carbon at the correct dose prevents chemical toxicity
- Organic Acids – Very potent mold inhibitors
- Elemental Copper – Enhances pre-feeding effectiveness by controlling mycotoxin causing fungi
- Lipotropic Agents – Reduces secondary effects of mycotoxins
- Poultry – Broilers / Layers / Breeders: 500 g to 2 kg per ton of feed
