• Calcium sulphate improves pellet durability, helps to reduce fines and ensures pellets are capable of withstanding pressures exerted in feed delivery and auger systems. • Reducing fines protects against nutrient losses throughout the production process, particularly of valuable vitamins and minerals. It also ensures conditioners and pellet coolers remain biosecure and reduces dust migration throughout the feed mill. • Trials show that Mastercube is more effective compared to synthetic gums in terms of improved energy usage, reduced fines and increased pellet durability. What makes Mastercube different to other pellet binders? Whilst many pellet binders and improvers share similar benefits when used during feed manufacture and these are well understood, Mastercube provides a unique difference. Due to its innovative formulation, these benefits are seen even at a low inclusion. This not only makes Mastercube a highly cost effective pellet improver but it also provides more flexibility in terms of the feed formulation by releasing nutritional space. For more information on Mastercube, please visit www.anpario.com or email email@example.com.
Biochem B.I.O.Tox Activ8® – it’s time to detox Successfully binding the mycotoxin DON is a challenge due to the special molecular properties of the mycotoxin. This is particularly difficult in high pH environments, such as that of the small intestine, where mycotoxin damage can result in cytotoxic effects on cells and result in reductions in growth performance or fertility issues. B.I.O.Tox® Activ8 is the result of a careful selection of different raw materials, their further processing, extensive testing and the perfect ratio of the single ingredients. The well-balanced composition of mineral binding agents is able to bind all currently relevant mycotoxins, including DON. Like all the other members of the B.I.O.Tox® family B.I.O.Tox® Activ8 starts to work immediately after uptake; important for DON as first serum levels are seen 20 minutes after ingestion.

react to form peroxides. This leads to loss of quality and organoleptic alterations, which can cause nutritional issues and decrease shelf life. Antioxidants therefore play a crucial role in limiting these problems. There is increasing demand for sustainable, safe and natural alternatives because legislative issues mean certain traditional synthetic antioxidants are being withdrawn from use. The Oxabiol® range includes 100% natural mixed tocopherols, which are derived from soybean oil and contain alpha, beta, gamma and delta-tocopherol antioxidant forms. It is the delta-tocopherol form that has the greatest antioxidant effect. The products contain a minimum of 18% delta -tocopherol, 55% of gamma and beta-tocopherol and a minimum 5% alpha. As a result these products are highly effective at protecting fatty compounds against oxidation.

The powerful antimicrobial effects of VevoVitall® can help to improve feed quality leading to improved intakes and superior performance. Lowering the pathogenic bacteria loading in both the feed and the animal will increase the amount of nutrients available for growth and performance as well as reducing the incidence of digestive upsets and the need for medication. VevoVitall® is the active form of sodium benzoate, a widely used preservative in human food applications. It acts to regulate the growth of yeast and bacteria by effectively reducing pH in the gastrointestinal tract and cytoplasm of pathogenic micro-organisms. This results in death of the micro-organism due to disruption of their internal

together with the pressure to reduce the use of medicinal products, has led to the increased use of alternative products to improve or maintain feed quality. The most important factor when choosing an alternative is that it has proven effects and is able to deliver consistent cost-effective benefit. VevoVitall® contains 99.9% technically pure benzoic acid and is authorised as a zootechnical feed additive for pigs from weaning to slaughter and for sows. This authorisation proves the efficacy and safety of the product and provides confidence that the user can expect a consistent cost effective benefit.

Toxin Plus For more than 10 years, Orffa has been working on a complete mycotoxin management system, tailored to the co-occurrence of multiple mycotoxins in feedstuffs, and reducing the negative impact on the health status of production animals such as ruminants, poultry and pigs. Multiple in vitro trials were performed to assess the binding capacity of single ingredients which formed the basis for the development of a commercial preparation, Excential Toxin Plus, consisting of 5 synergistically working ingredients. Excential Toxin Plus was subsequently benchmarked against 30 commercially available mycotoxin binders (including 8 premium global brands) for binding capacity and biotransformation of 12 most pronounced mycotoxins. The in vitro experiments were designed in close collaboration with MYTOX and executed by the Centre of Excellence in Mycotoxicology and Public Health (Ghent University, Belgium). Results indicated that there are clear differences between commercially available mycotoxin binders and that Excential Toxin
Trouw Nutrition’s feed safety programme is designed to ensure feed safety for a profitable business looking at the whole production chain. As public awareness for feed and food safety increases so does the consumer demand for safe products. Trouw Nutrition can help you improve feed safety through our 5 point action plan. 1. Mill – Identifying critical control points throughout the whole mill can help to determine key areas where feed safety can be improved whether it be raw material or finished feed. 2. Audit – Taking samples from key points throughout the process will give a wider picture of the company’s overall microbial blueprint and moisture profile. 3. Laboratory – Analysis of both audit and routine samples to determine moisture profile, microbial and mycotoxin levels in feed is carried out at the Trouw Nutrition laboratories. 4.
