The liquid solution from the inventor of Mycofix®
FUMzyme®, the only enzyme targeted to fumonisins, is now also available for all post-pellet applications.
- Irreversible detoxification of fumonisins by biotransformation
- Reduction of the general negative effects of fumonisins on the liver, immune system, gut integrity and general performance
- Prevents porcine pulmonary edema, predisposition to necrotic enteritis and reduced storage stability of shrimp meat
FUMzyme® is our breakthrough, patented and registered purified enzyme to biotransform fumonisins into non-toxic metabolites1. Now BIOMIN is offering a revolutionary product, FUMzyme®sol, .suitable for all kinds of liquid applications after treatments at temperatures which could challenge enzyme activity.

FUMzyme® sol was developed to address the new needs of the feed industry: the need to control feed-borne pathogens and to be able to adapt to a variety of pellet shapes and consistencies. Feed is processed under temperatures that can be very challenging for enzymes used to mitigate mycotoxins.
BIOMIN engineered a specific, purified enzyme, a fumonisin esterase, that biotransforms fumonisins into non-toxic metabolites according to the following reaction:
Why do we need an enzyme against fumonisins?
Fumonisins are the second most prevalent mycotoxins worldwide. They undertake synergistic interaction with other mycotoxins and are a problem in animal production.
Unlike aflatoxins and due to their chemical structure, fumonisins cannot be bound by “binders”. The figure below demonstrates the pH dependency of adsorption of fumonisin by different binders on the market:
In vitro and in vivo efficacy
The detoxifying activity of this revolutionary enzyme was confirmed in in vitro and in vivo experiments. FUMzyme® converts 60 ppm fumonisin B1 into the non-toxic metabolite after just 15 minutes.
