Mycotoxins

Managing the Threat

Managing the Threat

To effectively manage the inevitability of feed mycotoxin contamination, it is important to understand the level of mycotoxin challenges within the supply chain so that the right steps can be taken to mitigate negative affects on animal performance and food safety.

This involves establishing the correct monitoring procedures, as well as identifying critical mycotoxin contamination levels for the given animal species being fed. This allows the right balance to be struck between economical feeding and optimal animal performance.

The Alltech Mycotoxin Management Program consists of:

ALLTECH 37+®
ALLTECH® MIKO
MYCOSORB A+®

ALLTECH 37+®

Alltech’s 37+® programme can detect the presence of more than 37 different mycotoxins in feed raw materials and forage. It will also provide a risk assessment of the threat to your animals along with tailored recommendations – all within two weeks of sample submission.

ALLTECH® MIKO

Alltech is now helping farmers globally assess the multiple mycotoxin threat in animal feedstuffs by working through a risk assessment process based on HACCP principles. NASA first used this programme as a way to control food for its astronauts and reduce the risk of food poisoning. Alltech® MIKO (Mycotoxin Hazard Analysis Programme) is our systematic method for identification, assessment and quality control of feeds founded on seven basic principles.

MIKO principles

  1. Perform a hazard analysis
  2. Determine the critical control points (CCP)
  3. Establish the critical limits
  4. Establish the monitoring procedures
  5. Establish corrective actions
  6. Establish checking procedures
  7. Establish procedures for recording information

MYCOSORB A+®

Backed by over 20 years of research and patent protected technology, Mycosorb A+® is the next generation of mycotoxin binders, offering superior binding capabilities, a broader adsorption profile and increased efficacy.

Including Mycosorb A+® reduces the threat of mycotoxins in animal feed. The unique technology behind Mycosorb A+® makes it the most advanced mycotoxin binder on the market. Its superior binding capabilities, broader adsorption profile and increased mycotoxin sequestration efficacy sets it apart from competitor products.
