Mycotoxins in focus at VIV Asia

Biomin will unveil its fully re-formulated, all-in-one mycotoxin risk management solution for livestock at the VIV Asia 2015 in Bangkok. The company will also organise a special event on mycotoxins.

The updated solution* will be introduced to the Asian market on 11 March in Bangkok, Thailand. The mycotoxin additive uses three modes of action –biotransformation, adsorption and bioprotection– to deliver absolute protection against mycotoxins –fungal metabolites toxic to animals and humans produced by common molds found in almost all types of grains.

  • Biotransformation. A unique combination of patented specific enzymes and biological components converts mycotoxins into non-toxic and environmentally safe metabolites. This mode of action targets fumonisins, trichothecenes, zearalenone and ochratoxin A.
  • Adsorption. Mineral adsorbents selectively bind adsorbable mycotoxins such as aflatoxins and ergot alkaloids.
  • Bioprotection. An innovative mix of natural ingredients provides immune support and counters the toxic side effects caused by mycotoxins.

Mycotoxin event

Since 2004, Biomin has conducted the annual Mycotoxin Survey to identify the presence and potential risk posed to livestock animal production by mycotoxins worldwide. This year the latest data on trends and occurrences will be presented on March 12 at the “Mycotoxins in Focus: Trends, Facts and Effects” conference to be held during the VIV Asia on March 12th at BITEC in Bangkok.
