Are there Mycotoxins in your air or food? Mycotoxins can be produced by fungi growing on crops during field or storage conditions and on damp building materials. Emerging research indicates that exposure to mycotoxins may lead to a variety of health effects. Some of the more common exposures can be traced to ingestion of contaminated foods and feed. Examples of contaminated food ingredients include: barley, corn, rice, soybean, wheat, etc. The types and quantity of the mycotoxins produced depend on the fungi present and on the environmental conditions.

Recent news articles related to aflatoxin exposures have reignited the concerns over potential human exposures as a number of grain supplies have become tainted resulting in serious health-effects to livestock.

“EMSL Analytical, Inc. has a talented, committed and renowned group of scientists dedicated to producing the highest level of analytical data”, reported Jason Dobranic, Ph.D., National Director of Microbiology at EMSL. “Analytical expertise coupled with industry leading customer service is the key to providing our clients with the level of service that they’ve come to expect from EMSL,” continued Dr. Dobranic.
