The deleterious and mutagenic mould fungus product patulin can frame during wrong cidermaking process of fruits like apple. The permitted daily exposure for patulin, was declared as 0.4 μg/kg body weight, by the scientific committee for foodstuffs of the European commission.  The specified determination routines have to be performed with HPLC according to official guidelines. Here, a fast protocol for the determination of Patulin from apple juice with AZURA® HPLC plus and a Eurospher II column is described.
Patulin contamination in apple juice
