Olmix moisture absorbing feed ingredients, developed from a unique technology, effectively reduce the opportunity for secondary metabolites to form and therefore produces a safer feed.
Moisture in Feedstuffs
Some climatic conditions and cultural practices favor the development of mycotoxins, secondary metabolites produced by fungi, as a result of moisture in the feed. Worldwide, more than 25% of harvested cereals are contaminated (FAO). Yet, mycotoxins significantly affect technical and thus economic performance on farms.
Reduce mold and fungi production
Moisture is the single most important factor in determining if and how rapidly molds will grow in feeds. Reducing the moisture content in feeds will reduce the incidence of pathogenic bacteria and molds which can lead to mycotoxin contamination.
AlgoniteTM feed additive for superior moisture control in feed
AlgoniteTM blends a specific clay and algae with other adsorbents to create a product with a wide adsorption spectrum and moisture reduction. AlgoniteTM is created from a new patented process, which increases the surface space between the layers of clay up to 10 times, providing a greater area for adsorbing moisture than any other product available.
Increased surface area to significantly reduce moisture and limit mold growth
No effect on nutrient adsorption
Integrated into feed
AlgoniteTM is finely ground to increase the surface contact with grains and allow for easy dispersion throughout the feed. AlgoniteTM has dramatically improved the natural adsorbent quality of clay by separating the layers of the Montmorillonite clay. Therefore, less AlgoniteTM is necessary to obtain better results.
The Olmix Technical Department will help you optimize the inclusion rate of Algonite in your feed based on your farm situation.
