Mycofix®

Mycotoxin Risk Management

The solution for mycotoxin risk management

The Mycofix® product line represents specially developed feed additives that protect animal health by deactivating mycotoxins found in contaminated feed. Mycofix® is suitable for use in poultry, pig and ruminant feed as well as fish and shrimp diets.

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.

The Science behind Mycofix®

Key to the effectiveness is a three-pronged strategy of mycotoxin control:

A unique combination of patented specific enzymes and biological components

Biotransformation

A unique combination of patented specific enzymes and biological components converts mycotoxins into non-toxic, environmentally-safe metabolites.

  • FUMzyme®
    FUMzyme® is the unique first-ever purified enzyme authorized by the EU to biotransform fumonisins specifically and irreversibly into non-toxic metabolites.
  • Biomin® BBSH
    The first-ever EU authorized microorganism that biotransforms trichothecenes into harmless metabolites.
  • Biomin® MTV
    T. mycotoxinivorans is a unique yeast strain to detoxify specifically zearalenone and ochratoxin A in the digestive tract of animals leading to non-toxic substances.
Adsorption via a blend of minerals

Adsorption

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

Innovative mix of natural ingredients

Bioprotection

Bioprotection ensures the hepato- and immune-protection that counters the negative effects caused by mycotoxins, through a scientifically proven blend of carefully selected plant and algae extracts.

5 proven benefits

Authorization within the EU

Mycofix® authorization within the EU

The EU registration for mycotoxin deactivation products is not only the legal basis for official mycotoxin claims. It is also a detailed evaluation with high standards for the efficacy and safety of a product.

Because of its long-standing focus on mycotoxin research, BIOMIN was able to get this successful EU authorization for Biomin® BBSH 797, FUMzyme® and the specific bentonite Mycofix® Secure – part of the Mycofix® product line. These three components are the only products till now that have undergone the complete registration procedure and succeeded in a final authorization.
