About this book

The term Mycotoxin literally means poison from fungi. Mycotoxins are substances produced from fungal secondary metabolic processes, which impair animal health thereby causing great economic losses of livestock through disease. This book gives an overview of mycotoxins in feedstuff and ingredients. It lists the degree of contamination, concentration and country of origin/detection for each case of mycotoxin contamination. In addition, the book shows whether a feedstuff/ingredient is predisposed for a mycotoxin contamination, detailing the number of mycotoxins as well as number of citations concerning one feedstuff.

From the reviews: "Printed in a handsome format, this book provides a compilation of the occurrence of mycotoxins in feed materials, including, where appropriate, comparisons with foods. ! It is a valuable source of information for those involved in the feed business ! . is a useful inventory for professionals in animal nutrition, the feed industry, as well as in feed inspection and control services. Due to its clear structure and format, it is ready for use in daily practice." (J. Fink-Gremmels, World Mycotoxin Journal, Vol. 1 (3), 2008)
