The prevalence of the toxigenic fungus aspergillus flavus strains in soviet made food products


Voprosy Pitaniya (6): 47-51
The prevalence of the toxigenic fungus aspergillus flavus strains in soviet made food products
An analysis of 813 specimens of agricultural crops and 155 specimens of good quality products from retail trading establishments demonstrated that more than 50% of them were contaminated with molds (A. flavus). Of the 489 strains isolated, 5.1% were toxigenic; according to morphological characteristics they were referred to molds of the A. flavus, A. fumigatus and Penicillium spp. Toxigenic strains were isolated only in specimens of agricultural crops; none of them were found in the products coming from the retail trade establishments. In the grain itself and in the food products, none of the fluorescent components characteristic of aflatoxins were isolated.
