    Mycotoxins are considered a serious threat for mankind health due to their ability to form toxin secondary metabolites. For this reason, many efforts are actually in progress to reduce their impact on food, feed and food chain by-products. In particular, a large part of the scientific investigation is focused on reducing the on field contamination using an in situ agronomic approach or specific biological tools. In this paper, the reduction of Aflatoxins (AFs), Ochratoxins (OTAs), Trichotecenes (TC), Patulin (PAT), Fumonisins (FBs) and Beauvericin (BEA) in industrial processes addressed to obtain finished products for human consumption will be explored and analyzed. In particular, performances of the main mycotoxins and corresponding reduction methodologies will be examined together with the processes and the process conditions used during the usual commodities handling and foodstuff ..
