Special Nutrients was founded in 1992, but its founders in 1987 were responsible for introducing the first AAM in the world to Latin America.
Our company philosophy is based on concentrating on the development with scientific basis of our products, carrying out tests to scientifically prove its effectiveness. Sales are made through our distributors in each country. We do not have direct sellers, we focus on R&D of our products.
Our products are based on the concept of Susceptible Bodies Insurance (SOS). We apply the original basic principle of 1988, that where an AAM is effective against mycotoxins, if it is statistically capable of controlling the damage to susceptible organs caused by each mycotoxin. Examples of SOS would be the liver in the case of aflatoxin, the kidney in ocratoxin, reproductive organs in the case of zearalenone, etc.

Working with an ample web of more than 50 distributors around the world, the company has been able to become one of the largest suppliers of mycotoxin binders in the global animal production business. This is a direct result of the confidence developed through years of diligent interaction with customers and distributors, which are highly satisfied with the quality of the products delivered continuously under a strict quality control program that starts in the mine and is completed by the delivery of an in vitro test certificate showing that the clays have always the same binding capacity against the most important mycotoxins affecting different species.
This superb service is complemented with an excellent technical service offered by veterinarians that will help you solve your health problems in animal production in the most important segments of animal production, depending on the needs of each particular market.

Quality of scientific results
Clays are like human beings no two are alike. Each clay has its «DNA», this implies that when a scientific study is carried out the results can only be applied to that clay. If the mine is changed, the scientific results of the original clay cannot be used. Our products always come from the same mines to ensure quality and scientific results.
85% Scientific Tests
We do not enter the dose set. In more than 85% of our scientific tests with SOS results, the dose used is the same as the commercial dose. We do not use a commercial sub-dose without scientific basis since the animal objectively reflects (not subjectively or influenced) the effectiveness of AAM when it is used at the scientific dose.
