Aflatoxins: Finding Solutions for Improved Food Safety

Aflatoxins are a naturally occurring carcinogenic byproduct of common fungi on grains and other crops, particularly maize and groundnuts. They pose a significant public health risk in many tropical developing countries and are also a barrier to the growth of domestic and international commercial markets for food and feed. In recent years the aflatoxin problem has garnered greatly increased attention from both policy and donor communities around the globe. What can be done to reduce the detrimental impacts of aflatoxins? Because growth of the molds that produce aflatoxins is caused by multiple factors, and because they must be controlled along the entire value chain from production to consumption, only a robust multifaceted approach to controlling aflatoxins is likely to be effective.

Aflatoxin Control: Safeguarding Animal Feed With Calcium Smectite

by: Joe B. Dixon, Ana L. Barrientos Valazquez, Youjun Deng
Aflatoxin contamination represents a serious threat to a healthy food supply. Understanding the nature of fungi infection and the factors that favor aflatoxin formation is important for grain producers, dealers, and other professionals who control grain from the field to the site of consumption. Producers of poultry, cattle, sheep, pigs, and even pet food need to be aware of the threat. Those who grow, store, or process grain subject to potential infection should be aware of the risks and proper management strategies.

The Chemistry of Mycotoxins

by: Stefan Bräse, Franziska Gläser, Carsten Kramer, Stephanie Lindner, Anna M. Linsenmeier, Kye-Simeon Masters, Anne C. Meister, Bettina M. Ruff, Sabilla Zhong
The biological activity of mycotoxins ranges from weak and/or sometimes positive effects, such as antibacterial activity (see penicillin derivatives derived from Penicillium strains) to strong mutagenic (e. g. aflatoxins, patulin), carcinogenic (e. g. aflatoxins), teratogenic, neurotoxic (e. g. ochratoxins), nephrotoxic (e. g. fumonisins, citrinin), hepatotoxic, and immunotoxic (e. g. ochratoxins, diketopiperazines) activity.
Nowadays, many laboratories around the world are specialized in the detection of mycotoxins in food products and contaminated material found in housing.
