FUMzyme® sol

FUMzyme® sol

The liquid solution from the inventor of Mycofix®

FUMzyme® the only enzyme against fumonisins is now also available for all post-pellet applications.

Benefits:

  • Unique, proprietary technology
  • Specific in targeting fumonisins
  • Irreversible detoxification

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. To control feed borne pathogens and to fulfill the needs for special characteristics in terms of pellet shape and consistency, 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:
A new chapter in the field of mycotoxin risk management: Introducing FUMzyme® sol, the first-ever water-soluble purified enzyme that can be easily sprayed on extruded feed and effectively degrades fumonisins into non-toxic metabolites.

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:

How to apply FUMzyme® sol
FUMzyme® sol added to a tap water (1) and mixed (2). The FUMzyme® sol solution is then filled in the tank (3) for the post-pellet liquid spraying (4) and sprayed onto the feed.

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.
