corn mycotoxinsI came across this article, “Are Mycotoxins The New Gluten?” February 24, 2015

It is a very interesting article. There are a number of good points in the article.

Currently, the FDA does not impose any limits on Mycotoxin.

Ochratoxin A, like most mycotoxins, it remains stable at normal food processing temperatures of 176 – 248 degrees Fahrenheit, meaning that OCA doesn’t simply cook off like the mold it rode in on.

As we head into the fall, there are reports that we could see a lot of moisture this fall and cooler temperatures. These are prime conditions for mycotoxin growth. At Midwest Laboratories, we continue to work at providing mycotoxin analysis:

Aflatoxin (B1, B2, G1, G2)  $ 75.00 |  DON (Vomitoxin    $ 75.00 |  Fumonisin(B1, B2, B3)   $ 75.00 | Orchratoxin A  $ 75.00 |  T2 Toxin Standard $ 75.00 | Zearalenone Standard $ 75.00
Full Screen Standard –  $260.00

Stay tuned for more on this story as we head into the fall.
