The occurrence of HT-2 toxin and other trichothecenes in Norwegian cereals

  title={The occurrence of HT-2 toxin and other trichothecenes in Norwegian cereals},
  author={Wenche Langseth and Thomas Rundberget},
A total of 449 grain samples, 102 barley, 169 wheat and 178 oat samples were collected from different regions of Norway from 1996–1998 crops, mainly from grain loads and silos. The samples were analysed for type A and B trichothecenes, the largest groups of mycotoxins produced by the Fusarium species, by gas chromatography with mass spectrometric detection (GC-MS). Factors affecting the presence of the different trichothecenes are discussed. Deoxynivalenol (DON) and HT-2 toxin were the… CONTINUE READING
