Mycotoxins and Food Safety
Edited by Jonathan W. DeVries, Mary W. Trucksess and Lauren S. Jackson
Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers
Mycotoxins, from the Greek "mukes" referring to fungi or slime molds and toxin from the
Latin "toxicum" referencing a poison for arrows, have earned their reputation for being
potentially deleterious to the health and well being of a consuming organism, whether it be
animal or human. Unfortunately, mycotoxins are a ubiquitous factor in the natural life cycle
of food producing plants. As such, control of the potential impact of mycotoxins on food
safety relies heavily upon accurate analysis and surveys followed by commodity segregation
and restricted use or decontamination through processing. The purpose of this book is to
provide the most comprehensive and current information on the topic of mycotoxins and
assuring food safety. Chapters represented in the book reflect such diverse topics ranging
from occurrence and impact, analysis, reduction through processing and plant breeding,
toxicology and safety assessments to regulatory perspectives. Authors represent a range of
