Amlan's bacterial toxin binder gets 'organic' status
Calibrin‐Z, which recently became the first product approved for the control of disease‐causing bacterial toxins, has gained listed status from the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI).
This approval confirms the product can be used in certified organic production according to the USDA National Organic Program Rule.
Calibrin‐Z is a broad-spectrum bacterial and fungal toxin adsorbent for use in livestock that has proven in more than 70 clinical studies to reduce effects from a broad spectrum of biotoxins that cause disease such as those produced by Clostridium perfringens, E. coli and Salmonella.
Recently completed work from the USDA demonstrates the ability of the product to control toxins produced by pathogenic bacteria, which are a leading source of economic loss to the global livestock industry.
"As the recently completed clinical research demonstrates, Calibrin‐Z is the only product to control the broadest range of bacterial and fungal toxins, which makes its OMRI Listed status extremely beneficial to organic and conventional producers alike," said, Dr. Ron Cravens, president, Amlan International.
The OMRI is a third-party institute that provides organic certifiers, growers, manufacturers and suppliers with an independent review of products intended for use in certified organic production, handling and processing.
