Mycoflora of Indian spices with special reference to aflatoxin producing isolates of Aspergillus flavus

Mycoflora of Indian spices with special reference to aflatoxin producing isolates of Aspergillus flavus

Indian Journal of Microbiology 28(1-2): 125-127

The mycoflora of spices, including Piper nigrum, Coriandrum sativum, Capsicum frutescens, Cuminum cyminum, Foeniculum vulgare, Trigonella foenum-graecum and Brassica nigra, was investigated. A. flavus, A. niger, A. nidulans, A. sydowii, A. ochraceus, Penicillium and Rhizopus spp. were most frequently isolated from the spices. Fusarium moniliforme F. solani, Curvularia lunata Alternaria tenuis and Drechslera rostrata were also isolated from many samples.
