Mycotoxins in dairy products: A review. This paper presents a literature review of the occurrence of several mycotoxins in bovine milk and dairy products, because it is the main type of milk Author: Noreddine Benkerroum. Apart from aflatoxins and ochratoxins, other mycotoxins contaminating dairy products or those that are most likely to contaminate them include P. roqueforti-toxin (PR-toxin).The latter mycotoxin, which appears to be the most potent one, is highly unstable in the cheese lfcmalta.com by: Dec 23, · Food-borne diseases, including those via dairy products, have been recognised as major threats to human health. The causes associated with dairy food-borne disease are the use of raw milk in the manufacture of dairy products, faulty processing conditions during the heat treatment of milk, post-processing contamination, failure in due diligence and an unhygienic water supply. This book is one of three volumes expanding upon content found in Mycotoxins in Foodstuffs, Second Edition, and focuses on milk and milk products, and lfcmalta.comuffs of plant origin that play only a minor role in mycotoxin contamination, such as asparagus, are also covered.
Mycotoxins may contaminate dairy products by moulds growing on them, or by the carry-over of mycotoxins occurring in animal feedstuffs ingested by dairy cattle. An example of the first mentioned category is sterigmatocystin, a carcinogenic mycotoxin sometimes occurring on hard lfcmalta.com by: As the prevalence of mycotoxins increase worldwide, dairy farmers will benefit by adding mycotoxin binder products that contain both an inorganic and an organic mycotoxin binder.

Eurofins Technologies through its subsidiary Tecna provides four different product lines for the reliable and effective mycotoxins analysis in cereals, feed, wine, coffee, spices as well as its international-renowned ELISA kits for aflatoxin M1 in milk and dairy products. . Of the mycotoxins that are found in feeds, approximately 85 percent are present in the crops at harvest. It helps to understand the broad effects of mycotoxins on the health of dairy cows. One of the first effects mycotoxins have on dairy animals is to impair the immune system.
