How do dairy producers test for aflatoxins in milk? | Behind the Science, S3 Ep6

Video   Feb 01, 2019

 

How do dairy farms test milk's safety? One of the tests performed on milk before it’s brought to market is for aflatoxins, a family of toxins produced by certain fungi that are found on agricultural crops such as corn, peanuts, and tree nuts.

The concern is that aflatoxins – which are human carcinogens – may be present in grains that are used as feed for cows, and that they may pass on to milk. Dairy producers can use a rapid, simple kit designed by VICAM, a Waters Business, to test milk.

Elise Palmer, a research scientist at VICAM, shows Jen how the test works in #BehindtheScience.
