Mycotoxins are a problem widely distributed globally in the area of animal nutrition. Mycotoxins can negatively affect animals immunity, fertility and production performance.
- Aflatoxins can affect the animal’s immune system and result in reduced growth and fertility.
- Fumonisins decrease feed intake and growth, and can cause multifocal hepatic necrosis, diarrhea and tibial chondrodysplasia.
- Ochratoxins cause kidney damage and failure, immunosuppression, poor weight gain and lack of pigmentation in chickens (carotenoids inhibition).
- Zearalenone possesses a strong estrogenic activity in swine and a very low acute toxicity in chickens.
Excential Toxin A is designed to absorb or neutralize the major mycotoxins.
