Aflatoxin and Food Safety (Food Science and Technology) by Hamed K. Abbas

By Hamed K. Abbas

Aflatoxins are chargeable for harmful as much as 25% of the world’s meals plants, leading to huge fiscal losses in constructed nations and human and animal affliction in under-developed ones. as well as aflatoxins, the presence of alternative mycotoxins, really fumonisins, brings extra issues in regards to the security of meals and box provides. There has no longer been a accomplished, unmarried resource consultant to synthesize the main updated info in this factor – formerly. Aflatoxin and meals protection provides the newest info on hand in aflatoxin learn and keep watch over. The editor – a number one writer, educator, and speaker on mycotoxin – has synthesized chapters from across the world well known specialists right into a unmarried entire source. The textual content considers the global influence of aflatoxins and describes fresh advances in learn on aflatoxin creation, research, and toxicology. It additionally examines the options utilized in controlling aflatoxin creation in plants, together with the advance of crop resistance to aflatoxin by way of such equipment as traditional breeding and genetic engineering. In its ultimate part, the e-book discusses the post-harvest administration of aflatoxin in infected meals and feeds. an amazing resourcefor these occupied with numerous organic, biomedical, and agricultural fields, Aflatoxin and nutrients security aggregates the aflatoxin learn accomplished by means of the world’s best scientists during the last 15 years in a radical and available layout.
