Mycotoxin testing is a critical analytical process used to detect and quantify mycotoxins, which are toxic secondary metabolites produced by certain fungi (molds) that can contaminate food and feed. These toxins pose significant health risks to humans and animals if consumed in high concentrations. Mycotoxin testing is essential for ensuring the safety and quality of food and feed products. Here’s an overview of mycotoxin testing:

Importance of Mycotoxin Testing:

  1. Food Safety: Mycotoxins can contaminate a wide range of food products, including grains, nuts, fruits, and spices, posing health risks to consumers if ingested.
  2. Animal Health: Mycotoxins present in feed can adversely affect the health and productivity of livestock and poultry, leading to economic losses for farmers and producers.
  3. Regulatory Compliance: Many countries have regulations and maximum allowable limits for mycotoxin levels in food and feed products to protect public health.
