    Aflatoxin Reduction Mechanism of Probiotics
    Author(s): Masresha Minuye*

    Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by various toxigenic fungi produced by Aspergillus, Fusarium, and Penicillium. They have mutagenic, teratogenic, carcinogenic effects for both humans and animals. Among the different mycotoxins, aflatoxins (AFs) are the most potent and it is a secondary metabolite produced primarily by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasitic in agricultural food staff such as peanuts, maize grains, cereals, and animal feed. The most abundance and heat stability of these mycotoxins during food and feed processing pose serious health problems in humans and animals. Therefore, to overcome this problem using biological detoxification method is the best. So, this review aims to see the effectiveness of the biological detoxification methods of aflatoxin, and reduction mechanisms. Probiotics are one of the biological control of mycotoxin and which are regula.. Read More»
