Aflatoxins are secondary metabolites produced by fungi of the genus Aspergillus, predominantly by A. flavus,A. parasiticus and A. nomius, which occur naturally in foodstuffs, leading to a wide variety of toxic effects in vertebrates, including humans. Contamination of food products with aflatoxigenic fungi may occur during production, harvesting, processing, transportation and storage. Human exposure to mycotoxins occurs primarily through the ingestion of contaminated food, including corn… CONTINUE READING
