Identification of some fungi and mycotoxins in sausage

Veterinary Medical Journal Giza 44(2A): 215-220

Identification of some fungi and mycotoxins in sausage

A total of 40 samples of sausages collected from markets in Cairo and Giza, Egypt, were examined for moulds and mycotoxins. The total mould contamination was high (92%) with mean count of 3.8 x 10superscript 3/g. Aspergillus, yeasts and Penicillium were the most predominant fungi isolated but in low frequency. A. niger and A. flavus were the predominant fungi contaminating sausages (65.0% and 32.5 %, respectively).
