Use mycotrap to absorb mycotoxins

Did you know? The UK’s food crop is anticipated to have higher levels of mycotoxins this year.

What is mycotrap?

mycotrap is a non-digestible, free-flowing and palatable product which is easily incorporated into feed. The undigestible clay compound binds with mycotoxins in the gut and guides them through the digestive tract.


What are mycotoxins?

Mycotoxins are toxic chemicals produced by fungi that readily colonise crops in the field and in storage. Moulds that commonly grow on grass silage and other wet feedstuffs can often produce mycotoxins. They can also be found in home-grown and imported feed ingredients and straw and bedding materials. 

Even at very low levels, these mycotoxins are extremely harmful to pigs, poultry and ruminants like dairy cows.

    What are the effects of mycotoxins?

    What are the effects of mycotoxins?

    Mycotoxins have inflammatory properties. This inflammation can contribute to changes in cytokine production, leading to:

    - A suppressed immune response
    - Higher cases of respiratory and digestive disease
    - Potential decreases in milk production and quality
    - Lower absorption of nutrients
    - Negative effects on fertility
    - Overall loss of performance

    University of Ghent research study

    The efficacy of mycotrap was evaluated at Ghent University in Belgium, one of the leading authorities on mycotoxin and mycotoxin research. The study used a two-phase method, which simulates the pH range within the entire digestive tract. The method proved mycotrap to be effective in adsorbing a wider range of mycotoxins in the acidic conditions in the stomach, near neutral pH milieu of the small intestine and alkaline environment of the hindgut than other products.
