FUMzyme® Now Available for use in Poultry and Swine

First FDA approved, mycotoxin degrading ingredient helps protein producers fight the negative effects of mycotoxins in feed

(Parsippany, New Jersey — November 17, 2022) Royal dsm-firmenich— a global science-based company focused on nutrition, health and sustainable living, announces the availability of FUMzyme® , fumonisin esterase, for use in poultry and swine feed in the United States. FUMzyme® is the first-ever FDA-approved purified enzyme to specifically and irreversibly degrade fumonisins into non-toxic metabolites. dsm-firmenich received FDA approval of the novel enzyme in June (swine) and August (poultry) of 2022.

Paige Gott, Ph.D., dsm-firmenich mycotoxin and Hy•D ® category manager, said, “With each year’s crop we see variation in mycotoxin contamination patterns. Fumonisin is one mycotoxin that continues to show high prevalence across the United States. In fact, since 2014, this mycotoxin has been detected in 50% to 80% of corn samples screened as part dsm-firmenich’s annual mycotoxin survey.”

dsm-firmenich is introducing FUMzyme® as part of the Biofix® product portfolio. The two new products, Biofix Plus with FUMzyme® and Biofix Select with FUMzyme®, will be available mid-November 2022 for both swine and poultry.

“Because of the various negative outcomes on livestock health and performance associated with mycotoxins, it’s important for producers to take proactive steps to mitigate mycotoxins on-farm,” said Gott. “FUMzyme® is a new tool that producers can incorporate as part of a comprehensive mycotoxin risk management strategy.”

Customers interested in learning more about mycotoxin solutions should contact their dsm-firmenich representative or visit the FUMzyme webpage.
