• Clay-based binders possess high binding properties towards the tested aflatoxins and ENN B.
• OTA and the tested trichothecenes (DON, T-2 and HT-2) are hardly bound by the majority of the tested binders, and there was a large variety between pH 3 and pH 7. For ZEN, a large variety could be observed between different binders.
• Yeast-based binders show the highest binding capacity towards ZEN.
• For the tested fumonisins (FUMB1, FUMB2), many binders have a very high binding capacity at pH 3 (as high as 100%), but poorly bind at pH 7 (as low as 0%).
