General Information:

Aflatoxins are toxic metabolites of major concern to the dairy industry, generally produced by Aspergillus flavus, A. parasiticus and A. nomius. They can have immunosuppressive, mutagenic, teratogenic and carcinogenic effects. Aflatoxines that are ingested by animals in contaminated pellets and forage are biotransformed at the hepatic level into Aflatoxin M1 (AFM1). Aflatoxin is then excreted in this form into the milk used for human consumption and, it is also present in dairy products. AFM1 in milk and milk products is considered to pose certain hygienic risks for human health and as a result there is an established EU limit 0,05 μg/kg (50ppt).
