E.F.S. is always evolving! As a result, we’re constantly on the lookout for innovative knowledge about our products. In this context, we studied the heat stability of Tox-Aid®, our mycotoxin deactivating product. A recent study shows the enzyme activity of Tox-Aid® is only affected minimally if briefly heat-treated at high temperature (100 °C).

In a conditioning process (min. 75 °C), it normally takes 30 to 40 seconds to reach the core of the feed particles. In this study, the enzyme activity of Tox-Aid® was measured after exposure to different temperatures for different periods of time. Little or no effect on enzyme activity was observed at temperatures of up to 85 °C. At temperatures above 85 °C over a longer period of time, the enzyme activity of Tox-Aid® decreases.

It can be concluded that at the average temperature used in a general production process, the enzyme activity and effect of Tox-Aid® is not affected.
