SUMMARY
  • Anpro adsorbents are effective at reducing the contamination of secondary fungal metabolites from moulds.
  • Anpro adsorbents do not bind dietary minerals.
  • Anpro is a broad spectrum, low inclusion control system for feed quality management.

 

BACKGROUND
  • Mycotoxicosis in livestock worldwide has been extensively researched and is recognised as a major concern for the health and welfare of the animals as well as for efficient production.
  • Adsorbents used to counter the negative impacts of mycotoxins may have undesirable consequences of binding other nutrients from the daily ration.
  • This must be considered in the choice of adsorbent used.
  • Anpro is an adsorbent that can help mitigate the potentially harmful effects associated with the presence of secondary fungal metabolites found in feed and raw materials.

 

TRIAL DESIGN

Samples of Anpro were tested for their effect of binding minerals in vitro by Alimetrics (Finland). Three doses of binder were used: 0.1%, 0.5% and 1.0% at both pH 2.5 and pH 6.5. The macro minerals assessed were potassium (K), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), sodium (Na) and phosphorus (P).

RESULTS

Figure 1. Effect of Anpro on Mineral Binding at pH 2.5 and 6.5

  • There was no effect of Anpro on the recovery of minerals from the solution, i.e., Anpro did not bind any of the minerals at any dose or either pH tested (Figure 1).
  • Anpro is a broad spectrum, low inclusion control system for feed quality management.
