The study, carried out at the Beirut Arab University's Nutrition Department, found that a toxin produced by some species of fungi or mold, called mycotoxin
, was "widespread" in prevalent spices and herbs.
Mould incidence and mycotoxin
contamination in maize kernels from Swat Valley, North West Frontier Province of Pakistan.
Corn is widely utilized as a ensiling material throughout the world, and corn plants in the field can be contaminated with fungi and mycotoxin
formation may occur under unfavorable conditions, such as high temperature and drought stress.
contamination is a food and feed safety issue, certainly for grains and other staple crops.
Aflatoxin is the most frequently reported Mycotoxin
This project was designed to evaluate the impact of two commercial mycotoxin
binders (MycotoxA(r) and MycofixA(r) Plus 3.0) on the humoral immunity, lymphoid organs and growth performance of broilers.
Through their mycotoxin
metabolites, pathogenic fungi can reduce the efficacy of the immune system by suppressing multiple different components of it.
[USPRwire, Mon Sep 24 2018] The report " Mycotoxin
Testing Market by Type (Aflatoxins, Ochratoxin A, Patulin, Fusarium Toxins), Technology (HPLC-Based, LC-MS/MS-Based, Immunoassay-Based), Food Tested (Feed & Food), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022", The mycotoxin
testing market is projected to reach USD 1.56 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2016 to 2022.
The use of insect protected corn is already improving feed quality by decreasing mycotoxin
Summary: Ochratoxin A (OTA) is the second most important and naturally occurring mycotoxin
after aflatoxin produced as a secondary metabolite by 8 kinds of Aspergillus and 6 species of Penicillium, which can contaminate a wide variety of food and feedstuffs.
