Targeted protection against adsorbable mycotoxins plus fumonisins.
It uses two modes of action – adsorption and biotransformation – to deliver targeted protection against adsorbable mycotoxins and fumonisins.
The only EU authorized and patented product ingredients proven to adsorb aflatoxins1 and biotransform fumonisins2 into non-toxic metabolites.

Mycofix® Focus includes FUMzyme® in its composition. FUMzyme® is the only enzyme available that biotransforms fumonisin irreversibly into non-toxic metabolites of hydrolyzed fumonisins and two chains of tricarballylic acid.
Over 90% of all analyzed agricultural commodity samples contain one or more mycotoxins according to the latest DSM Mycotoxin Survey.
Mycotoxins impair the health status and performance of animals
Negative effects include impaired reproduction, digestive disorders, weakened immune function, carcinogenicity, hepatotoxicity, neurotoxicity and decreased performance—in addition to higher production costs and lower profits for producers.
The revolutionary inactivation capacity of this enzyme has been confirmed in in vitro and in vivo experiments. FUMzyme® can convert about 60 ppm FB1 into HFB1, a non-toxic metabolite, in only 15 minutes
In vitro degradation rate of 60 ppm fumonisin B1 (FB1) by FUMzyme®. There was total degradation of the FB1 (18 units/L) after 15 minutes
Mineral adsorbents selectively bind adsorbable mycotoxins such as aflatoxins and ergot alkaloids as well as endotoxins. Mycofix® contains EU authorized bentonite which binds more than 90% of aflatoxins, meeting the strict requirements set by the European Union Reference Laboratory (EURL).
The unique purified enzyme FUMzyme® degrades fumonisins (FUM) specifically and irreversibly into non-toxic metabolites.
