Genuine biotransformation

EFSA acknowledged the efficacy of Biomin BBSH 797 in safely biotransforming trichothecenes into non-toxic compounds in the gastrointestinal tract of poultry, as demonstrated in numerous feeding trials.

"In vitro and in vivo studies showed that the inclusion of the additive at the recommended dose of 1.7 x 108 CFU/kg was effective in reducing contaminating DON in feed when given to avian species with a concomitant production of the less toxic de-epoxy metabolite," read the EFSA Opinion.
