Mycotoxin is a toxic metabolite produced by fungi (mycete) and can be generated in the processes of crop growth, harvest, storage, transportation, processing, and so on. The most common mycotoxins for corn, wheat, bran and protein meals include aflatoxin, vomitoxin, zearalenone, T-2 mycotoxin, fumitremorgin and ochratoxin. These mycotoxins not only cause serious damage to animal health and production performance, but also bring potential threats to human food safety.
Feed mycotoxin absorbent is also known as toxin binder. The research and usage of mycotoxin absorbent started relatively early overseas. Imported mycotoxin absorbent entered Chinese market until the 1990s. However, China’s feed and husbandry industry accepted this product even later. In 2003 and 2004, mycotoxin content in corn and other cereals exceeding limits in led to frequent disease outbreaks in China animal husbandry industry, then the harm of mycotoxin and necessity of mycotoxin absorbent began to be realized by farms and feed mills.
In the past decade, market demand for mycotoxin absorbent in China soared, and domestic and foreign mycotoxin absorbent products emerged largely. The most popular foreign brands in China include Biomin, Altech, Kemin, Omega, Bayer, PAH, and so on. Besides, domestic large-scale feed additive and animal health companies, such as Baolai-leelai, Ringpu and Tengjun, also entered this market in succession.
Due to low entry threshold, the brand of mycotoxin absorbent in the domestic market is numerous, including domestic and foreign famous brands and the products produced by small and medium-sized veterinary drugs companies. The common imported brands in the market include: Biomin, Alltech, Kemin, Schering-Plough, PAH, etc; the number of domestic mycotoxin absorbent producers is upward of 100, of which the famous brands include Jiangxi Mage, Hvsen Biotechnology, Guangdong Galloper, etc. Currently, the market share of imported brands reaches 50%, of which the market share of Biomin and Alltech is highest, accumulatively taking up 20%.
