Mycotoxins and Food Safety
The contamination of food and feed with mycotoxins is a global threat to food safety and has great public health and economic significance. Mycotoxin contamination risk is very weather dependent and the EU food and feed chain knows when to increase controls and when to use technologies to decontaminate grains or other crops produced in the EU. When commodities like grains, cocoa, coffee, spices, dried fruits, or nuts are imported, however, the risk is unpredictable, and the analytical control system must be vigilant at all times. This video talks about it with Maurizio Paleologo, CEO of Affidia.
