This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:Cereals represent the most important source of food in many countries. Simultaneously, they are probably the most important source of intake of mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are found in a variety of foods, including both plant-based and animal products. They are persistent, harmful to animals, humans and responsible for economic losses amounting to billions of euros. Consumption of mouldy feed by food-producing animals can result in mycotoxin residues in their tissues and products made from such animals will be contaminated too. The final aim of the project is to provide the scientific community, companies and consumers with easy-to-use and reliable tools and protocols for mycotoxin occurrence measurements as well as to collect and evaluate data sets gained by these standardized methods.
