Exposure of infants to fumonisins in maize-based complementary foods in rural Tanzania

Exposure of infants to fumonisins in maize-based complementary foods in rural Tanzania

Molecular Nutrition & Food Research 53(5): 667-674

Feeding children with maize may expose them to fumonisins (FBs). This study assessed FB exposure for infants consuming maize in Tanzania by modeling maize consumption data (kg/kg body weight (bw)/day) with previously collected total FB contamination (microg/kg) patterns for sorted and unsorted maize harvested in 2005 and 2006. Consumption was estimated by twice conducting a 24 h dietary recall for 254 infants. The exposure assessment was performed with the @RISK analysis software.
