Management of Mycotoxin in Post-Harvest Food Chain of Durable Crops

Lelise Tilahun Dufera


Fungal secondary metabolites (mycotoxins) produced as contaminants on food and feed commodities are considered to be economically and toxicologically important worldwide. Aflatoxins, orchratoxins, fumonisins, zearalenone and trichothecenes are important mycotoxins which have been analyzed as natural contaminants in various agricultural commodities. In this review to minimize the risk of mycotoxin contamination in post-harvest food chain of durable crops; different Post harvest strategies for managing mycotoxins (early harvesting, proper drying, storage management, sorting and detoxification) have been discussed.
