Fungal growth (mould and yeast) on feed ingredients and feed not only affect the nutritional value of feed and feed ingredients but also affect the taste of the product leading to reduced consumption and ultimately poor animal performance.
Moulds are always present in feed and feed ingredients if not addressed and managed effectively, they lead to the formation of mycotoxins, which give rise to pathological effects in animals and poor intestinal health.
Kemin realises the importance of feed quality and safety and have therefore developed a Mycotoxin Management Toolbox to help farmers and millers address the issue. Myco CURB® forms part of this Toolbox as the star mould inhibitor to preserve feed and raw materials.
Myco CURB® is a synergistic combination of mould inhibitor compounds and surface-active agents, all of which effectively combat moulds and their harmful consequences on feed raw materials and finished feeds. The result is long lasting preservation from microbial growth during storage.
Myco CURB® penetrates the mould cell and disrupts the normal cell physiology (reduction of intracellular cytoplasm pH and generation of anion accumulation), resulting in mould death.
