Minervet S.A. launches in the Peruvian market its line of mycotoxin binders, with the products Aisen and Aisen Plus, and the feed efficiency improver, Miner G. These products are part of the catalog of mineral additives marketed by the company located in Mendoza (Argentina).
The agricultural sector, especially poultry and swine farming, in the Peruvian market has had exponential growth in recent years. In August 2019, it increased by 6.4% over the previous year, according to information from the National Institute of Statistics and Informatics. Among livestock products, chicken production increased by 4.3%, fresh milk by 2.8%, and eggs by 2.3%. The pork sector experienced the most significant increase, as it opened up markets in China, a country that was hit by heavy losses due to African swine fever.
AISEN, a mycotoxin binder marketed by Minervet S.A., is a natural additive composed of the Polysilicol molecule which, through a specific treatment, acquires a high mycotoxin adsorption capacity.
AISEN PLUS is also enriched with probiotics, favoring and optimizing the intestinal microflora balance. Both AISEN and AISEN PLUS are presented in 25 kg bags and can be added to feed at 0.5 to 1 kg/ton dose. This makes these products highly competitive in the market due to their low dosage.
Mycotoxicosis is one of the most common problems faced by the food industry. More than 400 mycotoxins have been described and, each year, depending on weather conditions, affect cereal production causing losses worldwide.
Aisen and Aisen Plus have proven to have a high binding efficiency for all types of mycotoxins, which have been evaluated in several studies, guaranteeing high adsorption minimums:
. AFLATOXINS >99.31%.
. DEOXYNIVALENOL >83.51%.
. OCHRATOXIN >80.05% .
. T2 TOXIN >75.12%.
. ZEARALENONE >71.61%.
The company located in Argentina has also introduced in the Peruvian market MINER G, a natural product that improves feed efficiency and is composed of natural active ingredients from botanical extracts. Its use improves the condition of the intestinal mucosa, thus favoring nutrient absorption and food digestion.
These additives, being of natural origin, do not require pre-slaughter suppression, do not leave residues in the animal, do not generate resistance, and can be used in all species and production stages. In this way, they provide small and large producers with the necessary tools to increase production effectiveness and efficiency.
These products are available in the Peruvian market through the distributor TRIVET SAC.
