The Variation of Aflatoxine in Few Fodder and Food Products in Brasov County

Monica Potrovita, Monica Roman, Mihaela Badea
Aflatoxins are produced by certain strains of Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Four aflatoxins (B1, G1, B2, G2), often occurring simultaneously, have been detected in foods and fodder. But the aflatoxin B1 is the most commonly occurring type of aflatoxin and a potent cancer-causing agent. The present studys aim was to determine the aflatoxins content variation- in the fodder and foodstuff from samples that have been harvested from farms, production units and food markets of Braşov County. The tests were developed in the Braşov D.S.V.S.A. laboratory. None of the samples presented values above the allowed present limits.
