Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by moulds and are ubiquitous in the environment. Their global presence in animal feed can have a detrimental effect on poultry health and production.
There are multiple different mycotoxins and there can be many types present in a single cereal or feed source at any given time. Therefore, having a mycotoxin binder that can efficiently target and bind a range of mycotoxins in the gastrointestinal tract is of the upmost importance.
Anpario are experts in the use of natural feed additives to optimise the health and performance of livestock. The Anpro range of mycotoxin binders has been developed to help mitigate problems associated with the potentially harmful effects of mycotoxins in poultry and provides a valuable, effective and broad spectrum mycotoxin management tool. The Anpro range, independently tested over various pH levels, has demonstrated efficacy both in vitro and in vivo. For further information on the benefits and application of mycotoxin binders within the Anpro range, please contact your Anpario representative.
