INTRODUCTION Mycotoxins are toxic compounds produced by different fungal species, Fusarium being responsible for most contamination of feedstuffs in the field. Among more than 400 identified mycotoxins, deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone (ZEN) are of most concern for the pig industry. Pigs are very sensitive to both DON and ZEN. When acute dietary exposure occurs, DON can lead to vomiting and feed refusal (1), whereas ZEN has oestrogenic effects (2). However, in practice, acute...

Tony Mcdougal, a freelance journalist, once wrote in Poultry World, "The rising demand for eggs, meat, and milk in recent decades has driven higher EU imports of grains and cereals from developing countries with more tropical climates, where the occurrence of mycotoxins is higher—thus raising the prevalence of mycotoxins in EU...

In 2023 mycotoxins semiannual survey, Life Rainbow Biotech randomly collected 152 feed samples of raw materials and feed mills in farms and analyzed. The samples were tested for aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, and G2), zearalenone, fumonisins (B1, B2, and B3), and deoxynivalenol (DON) by the ELISA Mycotoxin analysis kit. Contamination in animal feed 152 feed samples collected, and 77% were contaminated with fumonisins ( table 1 ). The maximum concentrations of aflatoxins,...

Mycotoxins are a major problem in the poultry industry causing significant negative effects on animal health, productivity, and the economics of production. Binders such as bentonites are typically added to poultry diets to adsorb mycotoxins in the gastrointestinal tract and protect the birds against the harmful effects of mycotoxins. Bentonites are effective in preventing aflatoxicosis, however, their activity against zearalenone, ochratoxin, and trichothecenes is limited (Bhatti et al.,...

INTRODUCTION For manufacturers and retailers across an expanding spectrum of market and industry sectors, the level of bisphenol A (BPA) in the products they make or sell is becoming not only an increasingly important measure of their commitment to consumer and environmental health and safety, but also a major compliance issue. An estrogen-like chemical that can interfere with hormonal function, BPA has long been a key component of the polycarbonate polymers and epoxy resins used to...

Introduction Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by various fungi in a variety of commodities and foods. These compounds are not directly involved in the basic functioning of fungi, but some appear to play a “chemical offense” role and increase the susceptibility of the host organism to further fungal infection 1 . As suggested by their name, mycotoxins can cause toxic effects when consumed. The potential harmful effects of mycotoxins vary and a...

In the first half of 2023, Life Rainbow mycotoxin analysis lab collected 141 feed samples of raw materials and feed mills in farms and analyzed them. The survey provides essential information on the feed pollution situation of Aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, and G2), Zearalenone, Fumonisins (B1, B2, and B3) and deoxynivalenol (DON) in Taiwan. All the samples were analyzed using ELISA Mycotoxin analysis kit. Results: 141 feed samples were collected, and 80.1% were...

Mycotoxins are toxic compounds produced by certain types of fungi that can contaminate feed and feed ingredients with detrimental effects on pig performance. Effects of mycotoxins on swine include reduced feed intake, altered nutrient utilization, impaired growth performance, immune system suppression, reproductive issues, and organ damage. Mycotoxins can cause a decrease in feed intake. Affected animals may show reduced appetite, leading to lower nutrient intake and slower growth...

This study was investigating the effects of a defined concentration of Fusarium mycotoxins, deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone (ZON) incorporated into feeds on growth performance of pigs and the alleviating effects of a mycotoxin degrading enzyme (MDE) on the toxicity of Fusarium mycotoxins. A total of 48 weaning pigs was randomly allotted to four treatments for a 6-week challenged trial. The MDE product was a kind of mycotoxin degradation enzyme with esterase, epoxidase and...

Introduction Zearalenone (ZEA) is a worldwide distributed mycotoxin as indicated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). 1–3 Its toxicity and incidence was confirmed by recent reports. 4,5 This resorcylic lactone is produced mainly by Fusarium graminearum and is one of the most important toxins causing serious reproductive failures in pig production, due to its ability to couple 17--estradiol receptors. This interference with cytosolic...
