The contamination of animal feed with mycotoxins represents a worldwide problem for farmers. These toxins originate from molds whose growth on living and stored plants is almost unavoidable particularly under moistconditions. Mycotoxin-containing feed can cause serious diseases in farm animals resulting in suffering and evendeath and thus can cause substantial economic losses. The most applied method for protecting animals againstmycotoxicosis is the utilization of adsorbents mixed with the feed which are supposed to bind the mycotoxinsefficiently in the gastro-intestinal tract. Aluminosilicates are the preferred adsorbents, followed by activated charcoaland special polymers. The efficiency of mycotoxin binders, however, differs considerably depending mainly on thechemical structure of both the adsorbent and the toxin. This review describes the most important types of adsorbentsand the respective mechanisms of adsorption. Data of the in vitro and in vivo efficacy of detoxication are given.
