The Relationship between Fungi Growth and Aflatoxin Production with Ergosterol Content of Corn Grains


The relationships between fungal growth and ergosterol content and between aflatoxins B1 and B2 production and ergosterol content were verified in corn grains. In the first experiment, fungal growth and ergosterol content were monitored during incubation of corn grains presenting water activities of 0.85aw and 0.92aw at 25oC over a period of 18 days.
