Mycotoxins in feed
MTox plus is a natural solution for mycotoxins in feed. The product is the result of 3 years research involving the National Research Institute of France, the Seaweed Centre and National chemical engineering school in Mulhouse and it is now available in Asia, with a local partner in Malaysia through Progress Agriculture & Farming.

Mycotoxins are a group of various secondary metabolites produced by fungi that occur in raw materials – grain. Pigs are quite sensitive to mycotoxins. Effects of high levels of mycotoxins are varied – for example, vomiting, reduced feed intake, lower fertility rates, and increasing vet costs for the pig farmers.
