The occurrence of patulin was investigated in 100 conventional and 69 organic fruity foodstuffs samples commercially available in Italy by using an HPLC method with a limit of quantification of 0.5 µg kg−1. Patulin was detected in 26 (26%) conventional and 31 (45%) organic products with a significantly higher (p < 0.01) mean concentration in the organic products (4.78 vs. 1.15 µg kg−1). Mean patulin concentrations in conventional apple juices, pear juices, other juices and fruits purees were 3… 
Occurrence of patulin in organic and conventional apple-based food marketed in Catalonia and exposure assessment.
Occurrence of patulin in organic, conventional, and handcrafted apple juices marketed in Belgium.
TLDR
The highest patulin concentrations were found in the most expensive apple juices because of the higher price of organic apple Juice and when only conventional apple juices were analyzed.
Occurrence of patulin and its dietary intake through pear, peach, and apricot juices in Italy
TLDR
The daily intake of patulin derived from the consumption of pear juice suggests that also pear juices, though a minor patulin source, could be monitored for their patulin content in order to control the mycotoxin contamination, especially in countries, such as Italy, where pear nectars are preferred as fruit drinks.
Patulin in apple juices: Incidence and likely intake in an Indian population
TLDR
The levels of patulin found showed a saturation of the provisional maximum tolerable daily intake (PMTDI) based on intake figures in terms of an average and 90th percentile of 27–60% and 107–190%, respectively, in different age groups, which may help in formulating guidelines for patulin levels.
Survey of patulin occurrence in apple juice and apple products in Catalonia, Spain, and an estimate of dietary intake
TLDR
Babies were the main group exposed to patulin, however no risk was detected at these levels of contamination, and adults and infants consumers were far from risk levels.
Exposure to patulin from consumption of apple-based products
TLDR
A method for the analysis of patulin is described, based on a simple liquid–liquid extraction with acetonitrile, which confirmed patulin identity was confirmed by GC–MS after its reaction with N-methyl-N-(trimethylsilyl)trifluoroacetamide.

TLDR
The low incidence of the patulin level in Italian apple products is a clear parameter to judge the quality of the fruit, and the extraction protocol more general and useful for juices, clarified juices, baby foods, vinegars, and purees was performed.
Incidence of patulin in apple juices marketed in Turkey.
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to investigate the patulin contamination of apple juices consumed by the Turkish population and to confirm patulin levels higher than 20 microg/liter (100 ng/spot) in apple juices.
Incidence of patulin in fruits and fruit juices marketed in Campinas, Brazil.
TLDR
Processed fruit juices and sound fruits produced and marketed in Brazil and analysed for patulin by HPLC confirmed the identity of patulin based on the UV spectrum obtained by the HPLC diode array detector.
Patulin in apple-based foods: occurrence and safety evaluation
TLDR
The data presented in this study indicate that the intake of patulin with apple derivatives is usually below the tolerable level of 0.4 μg/kg bw/day, but since the patulin content in apples can vary considerably, the quality of fruits used in the production of apple derivatives should be strictly controlled in order not to exceed the safe levels.
Patulin in domestic and imported apple-based drinks in Belgium: occurrence and exposure assessment
TLDR
Investigating whether patulin (PAT) is present in the industrial or handicraft-made apple juices and ciders consumed by the Belgian population and to assess the population's exposure to this mycotoxin through apple-based drinks indicates that a daily intake of 0.2 litres apple juice contributes to 45% of the provisional maximum tolerable daily intake for a child of 10 kg body weight.
Long-term survey of patulin in apple juice concentrates produced in Turkey
TLDR
Patulin contamination levels of apple juice concentrates tended to decrease through the years and averaged 63, 43, 19 and 31 μg/l in 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999, respectively.
Contaminants in organic and conventional foodstuffs in France
TLDR
The health risk for consumers might be real only for the contamination by mycotoxins as the contaminated foods (apples, wheat) are the main contributors to total exposure.
Co-occurrence of patulin and citrinin in Portuguese apples with rotten spots
TLDR
Findings indicate that there may be a risk of human exposure to patulin through the consumption of juices and jams manufactured with apples with small rotten areas.
Solid-phase extraction method for patulin in apple juice and unfiltered apple juice.
TLDR
Patulin was eluted with 3 mL 2% acetonitrile in anhydrous ethyl ether and was determined by reversed-phase liquid chromatography with UV detection at 276 nm and recoveries ranged from 93 to 104% in test samples spiked at 20-100 micrograms/L.
