Results showed that pulse light treatment using vibrating and conventional conveyors for 240 seconds at a 7-cm distance from the light source degraded aflatoxins
by 60% and 44%, respectively.
Kenya has been particularly badly affected by aflatoxins
flavus is involved in production of aflatoxins
in fruit and vegetables .
Mycobiota in poultry feeds and natural occurrence of aflatoxins
, fumonisins and zearalenone in the Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil.
Susceptibility to aflatoxins
can vary considerably between different poultry species (Arafa et al.
, Acetic acid, WBCsDC, Thymus, Harderian gland.
Working within an established rural population cohort in southern central Uganda, Asiki and colleagues  and Kang and colleagues  demonstrated that exposure to aflatoxins
was ubiquitous and that a significant proportion of people tested had relatively high levels, similar to those found in other settings in Africa.
subtilis was studied for its inhibitory effect against a standard strain of Aspergillus parasiticus which produces all kinds of aflatoxins
identification and quantification were performed by TLC using an aliquot (40[micro]L) of each sample, which was spotted on silica gel-G thin layer plate (Merck, Germany) and then developed with chloroform:acetone 9:1 (v/v) as a solvent system.
Maya Mokdad, project manager at the Lebanese Association for Food Safety, said that aflatoxins
fall into a broader family of substances known as mycotoxins, which are produced by mold and fungi that grows on spices post-harvest, prior to processing and distribution.
In this research, a new, simple and cheap method was used for the extraction and pre-concentration of aflatoxins
in pistachio samples.
The infection occurs on stored fruits and the contamination with aflatoxin
deteriorates the quality and make the produce unfit for consumption thereby restricting the export trade.
