Deoxynivalenol (DON) is a toxic natural metabolite produced by Fusarium graminearum. In this study we investigated the effects of sodium bisulfite and extrusion cooking under high temperature and pressure on DON levels in wheat grain and mill fractions. Samples of highly naturally DON-contaminated soft winter wheat were soaked for 1 h in water or aqueous sodium bisulfite (SB) solutions (0.5, 1.5, 2.5, or 5% SO2 equivalent) and extruded. The soaking treatment with SB solution (5% SO2 equivalent… CONTINUE READING
