Mycosorb is a patented broad-spectrum mycotoxin binding feed supplement derived from yeast. To prepare Mycosorb a specific strain of yeast is grown under prescribed conditions, inactivated and fractionated to separate the cell wall glucomannan from the rest of the yeast cell. The glucomannan is then processed to enhance its ability to bind with mycotoxins. Mycosorb is indigestible, so toxins that bind with it are removed from the body with the excreta.
Mycosorb is a natural feed additive for all animal species.
The product launched in 1993 quickly became Alltech's biggest selling and fastest growing product worldwide. Mycosorb has already been awarded two patents which protect its novel composition and methods of production.
