Mycotoxins of 'tortillas', its carcinogenic and cytotoxic effects

Mycotoxins of 'tortillas', its carcinogenic and cytotoxic effects

Proceedings of the Japanese Association of Mycotoxicology (Supplement 1): 242-243

Samples of tortillas collected from 83 shops in Mexico City during Feb. 1986-April 1987 were analysed for mycotoxins. Of 214 samples, zearalenone was detected in 6, aflatoxin B1 in 6, aflatoxin B2 in 4 and aflatoxin G2 in 3.
