Sorbatox is a complexed hydrated aluminium silicate developed to bind chemically with the molecular structure of Aflatoxin in an irreversible manner.
Aflatoxins and Ochratoxin are produced in raw materials and feeds by several species of moulds from the genus Aspergillus. These toxins cause a range of clinical symptoms at all stages of development in pigs and poultry.
Other mycotoxins, including the Trichothecenes (Deoxynivalenol) and Zearalenone, are produced by species of Fusarium and Penicillium.
It is extremely difficult to diagnose with any certainty the presence or absence of Aflatoxins.
Sorbatox traps mycotoxins as a result of electrostatic attraction to aluminium ions and renders them unavailable to the animal throughout the digestion process.
Use at 1-5 kg/Te. Typical inclusion rate for mildly contaminated feed is 2.5kg/Te.
Sorbatox should not be used in feed whilst animals are being treated with antibiotics based on Tilmicosin, such as Elanco PULMOTIL®.
Sorbatox is packed in 25kg plastic bags.
