The aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2) are a group of structurally related, extremely toxic compounds produced by the mouldsAspergillus flavus, A. paraciticus and A. nomius. Aflatoxins cause cancer, mainly of the liver but also of the gut, lungs and breast. These moulds mainly occur in food, feed and their ingredients. The most frequently contaminated matrices are cereals, rice, maize, soy, tree nuts and peanuts. For aflatoxins maximum levels (ML’s) are established legally in Europe. Depending on the products used for animal feed or direct human consumption the ML’s vary from 2 to 50 μg/kg (ppb). For baby food, processed cereal-based foods for infants and young children and for dietary foods intended specifically for infants, the ML is set at 0.1 μg/kg (0.1 ppb). EuroProxima BV has developed and validated an ELISA for screening for Total Aflatoxins in a broad range of matrices.
