Algonite-GTM A microgranulated moisture inhibitor in feedstuffs

Algonite-GTM is a microgranulated composition of moisture control feed additive, designed for easy application on the farm. With the combination of clays and algae, Olmix solutions can effectively limit the moisture content of feedstuffs, which can lead to the development of secondary metabolites of molds.

Managing mycotoxin risk by controlling moisture and molds

The Situation

Moisture in Feedstuffs

Modern soil management and varied climatic conditions may increase the moisture content in feeds, which favor the development of fungi and accentuate the production of secondary metabolites. Pathogens, such as mycotoxins, produced from these metabolites, can affect many areas of performance in livestock production.

The challenge

Reduce mold and fungi production

Mold, fungi, and other pathogen production depends greatly on the amount of moisture available for growth. Moisture reduction with the use of Algonite-GTM can significantly reduce the risk of pathogenic bacteria and molds which can lead to mycotoxin contamination.

The solution

Algonite feed additive for enhanced moisture reduction in feed

Algonite-GTM was created with a specific clay and blended with algae and other adsorbents to create a product with a wide adsorption spectrum and moisture reduction. Algonite-GTM was created from a new, patented process that increases the surface space between the layers of clay by up to 10 times, providing a greater area for adsorbing moisture than any other product available.

Advantages of using Algonite-GTM moisture control feed additive

Benefits

  • 1

    Increased surface area to significantly reduce moisture and limit mold growth

  • 2

    No effect on nutrient adsorption

  • 3

    Integrated into feed at the farm

  • 4

    Natural solution

Distinctly different:

Algonite-GTM is microgranulated to increase the surface contact with grains and allow for easy inclusion with the feed at the farm. Algonite-GTM has dramatically improved the natural adsorbent quality of the clay by separating the layers of the montomorillonite clay.  Therefore, less Algonite-GTM is necessary to obtain better results.  

To be incorporated in feed at the farm

ALgonite-GTM has been developed as a granulate for easy use directly at the farm or as a non-dusty form for feed mills to get a better homogeneity in the feed.
