Clariant to present animal feed detoxifier at Eurotier

Clariant, will present Toxisorb a 100% natural way to detoxify livestock feedstuff, at its EuroTier debut in Hannover, Germany, from November 11-14.

International trading of feed and feed additives means longer transportation and storage, which exposes feedstuff to risk of mould fungus attack. According to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), about 25% of feed worldwide is critically contaminated, leading to economic losses due to reduced animal health and eventual loss of productivity for the farming industry.

The clay mineral-based Toxisorb products help to protect livestock from dangerous mycotoxin poisons caused by mould fungi in animal feed, supporting healthy livestock and safe food production. Mixed into animal feed, the special adsorbents attract and bind toxins in the digestive tract of the animal. The bound toxins are prevented from further transfer into the animal's bloodstream and are eliminated with the digestive waste products.

Clariant's Toxisorb range is FAMI-QS-certified and covers a broad spectrum of toxins created by mould fungi. The products are highly effective, typically requiring only minimal dosage of 1-4 kg per ton of animal feed.

"With Toxisorb , Clariant provides a sustainable approach for eliminating toxic substances in a natural manner and contributes to the health of the animals and to the production of safe foods," comments Tobias Kahr, Regional Sales Manager EMEA Business Unit Functional Minerals Clariant.
