Plant based ingredients are increasingly used in fish diets due to increase in fish meal & fish oil prices. Plant ingredients, however pose a high risk of mycotoxin contamination, through mold infected ingredients. It hence demands appropriate protection strategies for contaminated feeds.
Mold inhibitor in feeds only controls the growth of molds but is ineffective against mycotoxins already released in the ingredient. Different ingredients may carry different types of mycotoxins. Combination of toxins at low levels of toxicity also affects growth.
Tox-Nil* acts as a toxin enterosorbent that tightly and selectively binds mycotoxins in the gastrointestinal tract of fish & prawn, decreasing their bioavailability and associated toxicities. Tox-Nil* is composed of a combined variety of different HSCAS that are galvanized by a special process to obtain a coordinated effect increasing the capacity & spectrum of the mycotoxin binder. Tox-Nil* adsorbs and retains mycotoxins, which are passed away through feaces without causing damage to the fish or prawn.
