What are Mycotoxins?
Mycotoxins are metabolites produced after molds grow in the field or in storage areas after harvest.
How are Mycotoxins neutralized?
Most of them are highly toxic substances that can be neutralized by adding mycotoxin binders like Mycoad and Mycoad AZ that are adsorbed (adhered) by electric charges.
What characterizes Mycoad clay?
Factors such as mineral compositions, the presence of different layers in the clay structure, as well as pH are critical characteristics necessary to obtain the correct products.
How does it occur in the absorption process?
Once the mycotoxin binders are ingested and come into contact with a liquid medium (saliva, digestive fluids, drinking water, etc.), the adsorption process begins.
Clays will bind to mycotoxins in the small intestine.
Where does the bonding process of clay and mycotoxins occur?
Clays will bind to mycotoxins in the small intestine. It is important to note that attachment should occur mainly in the first sessions of the small intestine (duodenum and jejunum) where most of the absorption of nutrients occurs.
