Algonite™ Moisture inhibitor in feedstuffs

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.

MANAGING FEED QUALITY BY CONTROLLING MOISTURE AND MOLDS

The Situation

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.

The challenge

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 bacteria and molds which can lead to mycotoxin contamination.

The solution

AlgoniteTM feed additive for superior moisture control in feed

AlgoniteTM blends a specific clay and algae with other ingredients to create a product with a wide spectrum of activity 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 surface area than any other product.

Advantages of using the AlgoniteTM moisture control feed additive

Benefits

  • 1

    Increased surface area to significantly reduce moisture and limit mold growth

  • 2

    No effect on nutrient absorption

  • 3

    Integrated into feed

  • 4

    Natural solution

Superior unique patented technology

AlgoniteTM is finely ground to increase the surface contact with grains and allow for easy dispersion throughout the feed. AlgoniteTM has dramatically improved the quality of clay by separating the layers of the Montmorillonite clay. Therefore, less AlgoniteTM is necessary to obtain better results.
