The effectiveness of an anti-mycotoxin additive cannot be based only on in vitro trials anymore; it has to be evaluated by conducting in vivo tests using a scientific experimental design measuring the beneficial effects of the product on target organ protection and animal performance.Practical methods to detoxify grain or feed contaminated with mycotoxins on a large scale and in a cost-effective m...

Dear Mr. Douglas, this was all nice information, thanks. May I ask, here, 0.5 Kg / MT is a treatment or prophylactic dose of Myco Ad AZ ? And another question, what is the exact composition of Myco Ad AZ ( both ingredients + potency )? thanks!

Dear Munir,

The dosage of Mycoad AZ to prevent the toxic effect of T-2 toxin in poultry is 0.5 kg/metric ton. However, the dosage of Mycoad AZ to prevent the damages produced by zearalenone, DON and/or fumonisin in pigs is 1.0 kg/metric ton. If the damages of any of those mycotoxins already ocurred, the best approach is to add 2 kg of Mycoad AZ per metric ton of feed for 15 days and then reduce the dosage to the recommended preventive level.

As it was mentioned, Mycoad AZ is a purified phylosilicate produced in Texas. Please visit specialnutrients.com or engormix to have more information about this product.

Could you please refer some scientific studies regarding:

1 - claim that clays only adsorb toxins and not other nutrients

2 - standard protocol for in vitro evaluation of AMA evaluation for ruminants and poultry

Newton's law is applicable here too"every action has its equal and and opposite reactions" Nevertheless, evaluating the merits and demerits, the incorporation of anti-mycotoxins seem to impart better results in favor of clays as good adsorbants
of toxins.
