Government Reference Publication

Introduction: The presence of toxin-producing fungi in foodstuffs and other agricultural commodities is well established (3) The Alternaria, Aspergilli, Fusaria and Penicillia have been repeatedly implicated as the pr&FiPal coinhabitants of products in which toxicity has been demonstrated (4;5). Numerous compounds have been isolated that can explain the toxicity of the Aspergilli, Fusaria, and Penicillia. Among the more important of these are the aflatoxins, patulin, penicillic acid, and sterigmatocystin, because of their carcinogenic potential; the ochratoxins, citrinin, cyclopiazonic acid, and the estrogenic zearalenone because of a variety of high toxicities and their frequent appearance in moldy foodstuffs.
