Determination of aflatoxins in cereal baby food samples

Application No.: VFD0182

Determination of aflatoxins in cereal baby food samples

From extraction to high efficient detection

Cultivation, drying and storage of cereals may contribute to the spread of molds,
which produce mycotoxins – toxic secondary metabolites. Their consumption can
lead to serious health damage. So it is inevitable to provide a simple, robust and exact
method for the analysis of mycotoxins in food, especially the most often occurring
aflatoxins to ensure consumer safety. In this application note the sample extraction for
processed cereals in baby food products as preparation for a highly sensitive HPLC
method is described.
