Updating techniques on controlling mycotoxins - A review

Updating techniques on controlling mycotoxins - A review Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by fungal species and have been reported to be carcinogenic, genotoxic, teratogenic, nephro- and hepatotoxic. Economic losses and health concerns due to mycotoxins occur at all levels of food and feed production, and this has attracted research interest towards exploring novel approaches to decontaminate and/or detoxify mycotoxin-contaminated food and feed. Therefore, we reviewed various strategies for the detoxification of mycotoxins, including pre-harvest prevention strategies and post-harvest detoxification procedures. Strategies for pre-harvest prevention include appropriate environmental factors, good agricultural and manufacturing practices, and favourable storage practices. For post-harvest detoxification strategies, physical, chemical, biological and other developing innovative strategies are discussed. This review is meant to be beneficial to the food industry and to contribute to assuring pre- and post-harvest management and processing practices that maximize consumer safety. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Food Control Elsevier

Abstract

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by fungal species and have been reported to be carcinogenic, genotoxic, teratogenic, nephro- and hepatotoxic. Economic losses and health concerns due to mycotoxins occur at all levels of food and feed production, and this has attracted research interest towards exploring novel approaches to decontaminate and/or detoxify mycotoxin-contaminated food and feed. Therefore, we reviewed various strategies for the detoxification of mycotoxins, including pre-harvest prevention strategies and post-harvest detoxification procedures. Strategies for pre-harvest prevention include appropriate environmental factors, good agricultural and manufacturing practices, and favourable storage practices. For post-harvest detoxification strategies, physical, chemical, biological and other developing innovative strategies are discussed. This review is meant to be beneficial to the food industry and to contribute to assuring pre- and post-harvest management and processing practices that maximize consumer safety.
