Toxfin™ 360° - Next generation mycotoxin and pesticide binder to reduce toxicosis in poultry

A "forward thinking toxin binder” powered with synthetic tectosilicates (STS) technology to reduce fungal and chemical toxicosis. The Kemin patent-pending material has stronger, faster and improved capabilities to bind to multiple mycotoxins and select pesticides with proven efficacy in in vitro and in vivo trials.

Economic Impact of Mycotoxins and Importance of Mycotoxin Control in poultry

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by fungi or moulds that display widely varying toxic properties (carcinogenic, immunosuppressive, hepatotoxic, nephrotoxic, neurotoxic, etc.) in humans and animals. As mycotoxins contaminate almost all agricultural ingredients, the risk of they entering the feed chain is almost unavoidable, consequently affecting poultry health and performance. For example, the presence of T-2 in broiler feed is causing specific damage to epithelial cells, manifesting in beak and intestinal tract lesions.

To partner with customers and to help maintain their feed quality and safety, Kemin created Customer Laboratory Services (CLS). CLS is translating customer needs into innovative tools: routine mycotoxin screening is one amongst them. During screening of thousands of feed and raw materials, low-level contamination is very common. In fact, mycotoxin co-contamination is the rule rather than the exception. Some mycotoxins can be present in masked form, so it is difficult to detect with routine methods of analysis. As a result, these undetected toxins can be released in the intestinal tract, putting the poultry at risk.

Therefore, in addition to preventative measures, by using the right mycotoxin adsorbent you can protect your business and poultry from the negative effects of mycotoxins. As this approach is rather inexpensive, and products can be easily incorporated in the animal’s diet, use of mycotoxin binder as part of mycotoxin control strategy in poultry is a common practice.

The guidelines for selecting a good mycotoxin binder to comply with specific criteria include:

  • Potential to reduce the risk from hazardous mycotoxins within the gastro-intestinal tract
  • Broad and specific spectrum of activity towards multiple mycotoxins such as Aflatoxin, Zearalenone, and Trichothecenes.
  • Absence of nutritional side effects such as binding of vitamins and minerals

Proven binding efficacy in vitro and in vivo.

Why is ToxfinTM 360° the best toxin binder in the market for poultry?

  • ToxfinTM 360° is the result of three years of extensive research and development.
  • A broad spectrum toxin binder, powered by next generation synthetic tectosilicates (STS) technology, with the ability to bind to multiple mycotoxins, including the newly prevalent mycotoxins such as Cyclopiazonic Acid (CPA) and Mycophenolic Acid (MPA).
