Moisture:
A Serious Challenge Facing
Your Aquaculture Business.

Not All Binders Are Created Equal.

Feed and moisture are two opposing forces that continually challenge feed manufacturers and aquaculture producers alike. Mycotoxins are often overlooked in aquatic species. Just because there are few easy-to-observe symptoms of mycotoxins in aquatic species doesn’t mean they’re not there. But with increasing use of alternative proteins in feed and improved detection methods, awareness is increasing and producers are coming to appreciate the impact on both production and quality.*

Successfully Manage Your Feed Hygiene.

AB20 nutritional specialty product is a bentonite adsorbent containing hydrated sodium and calcium aluminosilicates that reduces caking and flowability issues by binding moisture present in feed. Binders lower moisture in feed, reducing the potential for mold growth —and lowering mold growth in feed improves its quality. This is important when you consider that some molds can produce a wide range of harmful mycotoxins.
