Pattern and distribution of ergot alkaloids in cereals and cereal products from European countries
TLDR
The study revealed that 59% of the analysed food and feed samples were contaminated with ergot alkaloids to some extent and the levels of the -ine isomers were above the limit of quantification (LOQ), while contamination with the -inine isomer was found in 51% of of the samples.
A systematic assessment of the variability of matrix effects in LC-MS/MS analysis of ergot alkaloids in cereals and evaluation of method robustness
TLDR
In general, ergometrine was found to be the most susceptible among the ergot alkaloids studied, but none of the used approaches suggested a total elimination of matrix effects; only less than half of its MS signal could be recovered.
