  • AFLATOXINS Toxins in Peanuts, Vegetable Matter and Milk

    Aflatoxins occur naturally in peanuts, peanut meal, cottonseed meal, corn, dried chili pepper, etc. However the growth of mold does not always indicate the presence of toxin since the yield of Aflatoxins is dependent on growth conditions such as moisture, temperature, and aeration. The Aflatoxins are characterized as B for blue fluorescence and G for green fluorescence. The numerical subscripts ...

  • Identification and mapping of new sources of resistance to aflatoxin accumulation in maize

    Maize (Zea mays L.) susceptibility to ear rot and aflatoxin accumulation by Aspergillus flavus (Link:Fr) has caused significant economic losses for farmers in the U.S. over the past 30 years. Aflatoxin outbreaks are generally associated with high temperatures and low moisture levels common to the southern U.S. To identify aflatoxin accumulation resistance quantitative trait loci (QTL) and linked ...

  • Infant malnutrition and chronic aflatoxicosis in Southern Africa: is there a link?

    Malnutrition accounts for more than 5 million deaths of under-5s in the developing world annually. There is mounting evidence implicating aflatoxin contamination as an important factor in infant under-nutrition. Aflatoxins have in the past been associated with the development of primary liver cancer. More recent studies link chronic aflatoxicosis to infant growth stunting and increased morbidity ...

  • Reduction of aflatoxin B1 and Ochratoxin A in cocoa beans infected with Aspergillus via Ergosterol Value

    Aflatoxigenic and ochratoxigenic isolates were used to contaminate cocoa beans in this study and Ergosteol Values (EV) were assessed by means of visual inspection, Reverse Phase-High Performance Liquid Chromatography (RP-HPLC) and Gas Chromatography?Mass Spectrometer (GC?MS), respectively. Different concentrations of Aframomum danielli essential oils at 500, 1,000, 1,500, and 2,000 ppm were used ...

  • Biocontrol of aspergillus flavus and aflatoxin b1 production in corn

    Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus are the most important aflatoxin-producing filamentous fungi. They can occur in several plant products, like spices, cereals and oily seeds (Jelinek 1998, Pittet, 1998 and Lewellyn, 1992). Aflatoxins (AF) are secondary metabolites with a high carcinogenic potential, especially in liver tissue. In addition the aflatoxins possess an acute toxicity at ...
