Modeling postharvest mycotoxins in foods: recent research
MetadataShow full item record
Available information on the prediction of postharvest production of mycotoxins in recent years is reviewed. Predictive mycology has been focused mainly on fungal growth whereas studies on prediction of mycotoxins in foods are scarce. Modeling mycotoxin production is challenging due to the high variability in mycotoxigenic potential among species and isolates. Besides mycotoxin biosynthesis pathways and factors influencing them are still poorly understood. Baranyi and Luedeking-Piret models have been recently used as primary models for mycotoxin prediction, while for secondary modeling, polynomial approaches have been used. Furthermore, probability models can be a different alternative. In any case, media for data generation, intraspecies variability, and microbial interactions should not be disregarded before model application in food safety management systems.

Single vs multiple-spore inoculum effect on growth kinetic parameters and modeled probabilities of growth and aflatoxin B1 production of Aspergillus flavus on pistachio extract agar Aldars García, Laila; Sanchís Almenar, Vicente; Ramos Girona, Antonio J.; Marín Sillué, Sònia (Elsevier, 2017)The objective of the present study was to assess the differences in modeled growth/AFB1 production probability and kinetic growth parameters for Aspergillus flavus inoculated as single spores or in a concentrated ...
An attempt to model the probability of growth and aflatoxin B1 production of Aspergillus flavus under non-isothermal conditions in pistachio nuts Aldars García, Laila; Ramos Girona, Antonio J.; Sanchís Almenar, Vicente; Marín Sillué, Sònia (Elsevier, 2015)Human exposure to aflatoxins in foods is of great concern. The aim of this work was to use predictive mycology as a strategy to mitigate the aflatoxin burden in pistachio nuts postharvest. The probability of growth and ...
