TOXFIN™ RD – Enhanced Broad Spectrum Mycotoxin Binder for Ruminants in Sub-Saharan Africa

Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by moulds and fungi. They are colourless and odourless and can be present even if moulds aren’t visible. Mycotoxins can affect the health of animals by giving rise to pathological effects such as liver and kidney toxicity, reproductive and intestinal health issues.

The risk of mycotoxins entering the feed chain is almost unavoidable. Preventative mycotoxin management measures, such as the use of mycotoxin binders, are therefore a must for production economics, animal welfare and feed safety. By using the right mycotoxin adsorbent, you can protect your business and animals from the negative effects of mycotoxins.

TOXFIN™ RD – Optimal Mycotoxin Binder for Ruminant Feed Quality and Safety

Kemin Sub-Sahara Africa developed, TOXFIN™ RD, an economical and efficacious broad spectrum mycotoxin binder with enhanced binding capacity for the main mycotoxins in livestock feeds, including for deoxynivalenol (DON). TOXFIN™ RD was developed with the Southern Africa ruminant market in mind, in order to effectively manage the mycotoxin risks that ruminants are faced with in feeds and forages. Thereby, ensuring the health and production of animals.

How TOXFIN™ Works as a Ruminant Mycotoxin Binder

TOXFIN™ RD contains a blend of activated clays and carbons, possessing both positive and negative charges simultaneously. These activated components also possess different polarities at different pH levels. The binding is generated by ionic interactions between polar charges of both the mycotoxins and activated components resulting in binding and excretion of mycotoxins bound to TOXFIN™ RD. The formulated combination of activated binding ingredients, provide a multi-layered dipolar net to enhance adsorption capabilities under different pH conditions and binding area. The large surface area available also maximises the potential binding opportunities within the feed.

Key Benefits of Using TOXFIN™ RD as your Mycotoxin Binder

  • Broad spectrum of binding of mycotoxins, including DON.
  • Low affinity for essential nutrients, therefore, maintain nutrient availability to the animal.
  • Promotes excretion of mycotoxins.
  • Minimises health and production impacts caused by mycotoxins.
  • Reduces immunosuppression caused by mycotoxins.
  • Ensures feed safety.
