Safwall® selected yeast fraction for mycotoxin adsorption
Mycotoxin contamination can occur in all agricultural commodities in the field and/or during storage, if conditions are favourable to fungal growth. In a global survey published by C. Gruber-Dorninger et al. (2019), 88% of samples were contaminated, with 64% affected by at least 2 mycotoxins, highlighting the co-occurrence of mycotoxins. The mycotoxins fumonisins, zearalenone, and ochratoxin A were detected in 73%, 56% and 23% of the finished feed samples, respectively.
Yeast’s ability to adsorb mycotoxins is an effective solution for minimising damage. In line with 30 years of research and development commitment at Phileo by Lesaffre, Safwall® is the identified and scientifically proven yeast fraction deemed to be effective and reliable against mycotoxins.
The positive and consistent effect of Safwall® is to limit exposure to mycotoxins in feed rations, which can leave animals with depressed growth and reduced immunity. Safwall® adsorbs the mycotoxins present in contaminated feed, thus limiting their bioavailability after ingestion and decreasing the exposure of animals to in-feed mycotoxins.
