Climate change emerges as a critical issue ensuring food and feed safety

Mycotoxins are toxic compounds that are naturally produced by different types of fungi. When temperature and moisture are conducive, these fungi proliferate and may produce mycotoxins. Mycotoxins enter the food chain as a result of fungal infection of crops before or after harvest and during storage. They are found in raw materials, including cereals, soybeans, vegetable oils and silages.
