What are the legal limits for mycotoxins in feed in Brazil and which are the max tolerable levels to do research using contaminated feed with farm animals? Are these the same as in the EU?
Thank you
Fernando

Hi Fernando!
My apologies for not responding sooner. There are 3 accounts in Engormix which I sometimes forget to look at.
Well, about your question. We do not have specific legislation for feed. Our Ministry of Agriculture recommends 50 ppb for Aflatoxins (https://www.pegasusscience.com/site/us/mycotoxins/legislation). For animals, after the many years of in vivo experiments and analyzing the contaminations of clinical samples we have established general guidelines for absolute safety (https://www.pegasusscience.com/site/us/mycotoxins/maximum-recommended-limits). I inform you that it is not legislation, it is more than that, it is animal food safety!
Best regards

Does Aflatoxins arise when feed is not properly dry?

Dear Mr Clement
As in the answer above, sorry for not responding.
The only thing that ensures mycotoxins do not form is to keep feed at a water activity (Aw) below 0.7. Any food/feed will be safe that way.
Best regards
