Mycofix®

Absolute protection

The Mycofix® product line represents specially developed feed additives that protect animal health by deactivating mycotoxins found in contaminated feed.

Mycotoxins – a ubiquitous problem

The existence of hundreds of mycotoxins with different frequencies and patterns of occurrences, as well as synergistic complications arising from the co-existence of more than one mycotoxin in any given sample, underscores the need for creative and targeted solutions in mycotoxin counteracting strategies.

3 combined strategies

For the most complete Mycotoxin Risk Management

Adsorption

Mineral adsorbents selectively bind adsorbable mycotoxins such as aflatoxins and ergot alkaloids as well as endotoxins.

Biotransformation

A unique combination of patented specific enzymes and biological components converts mycotoxins into nontoxic, environmentally-safe metabolites in the digestive tract of animals.

Bioprotection

An innovative mix of natural ingredients counters the harmful effects of mycotoxins by providing immune support and protecting liver health.

Detoxification of trichothecenes
(such as DON, T-2 toxin, …) by enzymatic cleavage of the toxic 12,13-epoxy group.

Detoxification of ochratoxin A by enzymatic cleavage of the amide bond.

Detoxification of zearalenone by enzymatic breaking of the lactone ring.

Detoxification of fumonisins by enzymatic cleavage of the diester bonds.

EU confirms both safety and efficacy of Mycofix®

Three substances in the well-established Mycofix® product line from BIOMIN are the first products ever authorized by the EU as substances with proven mycotoxin counteracting properties.

  • FUMzyme® is the first purified enzyme that biotransforms fumonisins into non-toxic metabolites efficiently. Registered under Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1115/2014 and No 2017/913
  • Biomin® BBSH 797 biotransforms deoxynivalenol into non-toxic metabolites efficiently. Registered under Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1016/2013 and No 2017/930
  • Mycofix® Secure effectively binds aflatoxin B1 and prevents its absorption. Registered under Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1060/2013.
