  Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by certain filamentous fungi (molds). They can enter our food chain either directly from food components contaminated with mycotoxins or by indirect contamination from the growth of toxigenic fungi on food. Consumption of mycotoxin-contaminated food or feed can cause acute or chronic toxicity in human and animals. Thus

  Mycotoxins are metabolites of fungi having potential carcinogenic, mutagenic and other toxic effects in human and animals. Mycotoxin contamination frequently causes trade issues. Regulations have been established in many countries to protect the consumer from the harmful effects of mycotoxins. So, their detection at trace level or below regulatory limit is important. To comply

The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) system classifies risks to consumers into three categories—biological, chemical, and physical—and it emphasizes preventing, reducing, or eliminating high-risk biological hazards. Food safety professionals, as a result of years of education, experience, and audits to the HACCP system, often relegate physical hazards to lower risk status, primarily controlled
