Safeguarding Feed against Mold

Mold growth in feed and feed ingredients remains a significant challenge in the animal industry. When molds grow, they consume feed nutrients and produce toxic mycotoxins that can impair animals’ growth and health development. Rejection of moldy feed can lead to huge financial losses for feed and animal producers.

Myco CURB™ - Mold Inhibitor

Myco CURB™ is Kemin’s brand of mold inhibitors that are uniquely formulated with a synergistic blend of propionic acid and other organic acids for effective mold inhibition.

The application of Myco CURB™ is a well-established practice for preserving feed and grains from mold contamination. Stabilization of the feed and grains with Myco CURB™ secures the optimal nutritive value in the feed materials and achieve long-term feedstuff storage stability.

Myco CURB™ is engineered with Kemin’s Buffer Technology to reduce its pungency and corrosiveness. This technology makes Myco CURB™ safe for users to handle and prevents the product from corroding the feed mill equipment. It also enables organic acids to remain active in the feed for a longer time.

Myco CURB™ is also formulated with Kemin’s Surfactant Technology that enhances its ability to spread over a wider surface and penetrate the feed and feed ingredients, therefore offering maximum protection against mold growth.
