What are Aflatoxins?
Aflatoxins are in a family of poisonous, cancer-causing molds that are most commonly found in ‘binder’ ingredients such as tapioca, corn, millet, rice, sorghum, and wheat. Mycotoxins, aflatoxins and vomitoxins often go undetected in pet foods.
Aflatoxins have been linked to stunted growth, delayed development, liver damage and liver cancer. Dietary aflatoxin exposure is concerning, however certain aflatoxin molds can even permeate through the skin, lending legitimate concern to pet owners and their children in the home.
