Mould Inhibitors for Pet Food Additives

The presence of mould growth in pet food decreases the nutritional value and can result in spoilage and the potential loss of clients. Mould also produce toxic secondary metabolites, called mycotoxins, which when consumed by the animal result in mycotoxicosis which impacts on health and wellbeing of the pet. Mould growth and the production of their mycotoxins should be prevented at all costs. Although the impact of mycotoxins can be minimised by using mycotoxin binders it is preferable to prevent their formation through the inhibition of mould growth as early as possible with the use of mould inhibitor preservatives. Mycotoxins binders work by binding the mycotoxins in the gut so they are not absorbed by the animal and should be effective against the specific mycotoxins that are present.

MYCOBAN

Controlled release mould inhibitor specially designed for protection against moulds and yeasts in pet food, animal feed and raw materials including whole grains. A blend of buffered and free acids provides both persistent long-term protection and an initial rapid, effective kill. Carefully selected acids provide protection against all yeasts, moulds and spores. Mycoban has been formulated so as it is safe to handle, non-toxic to operators and non-corrosive to mill machinery.

TOXIBIND

Powerful and irreversible binder of mycotoxins with mould inhibition to prevent further mycotoxin formation. Toxibind contains activated aluminosilicate selected for its high surface area, binding ability and sorptive capacity and organic acids which will aid in preventing any further mould growth and mycotoxin formation during finished feed storage.
