Mycotoxins represent a risk to the food/feed supply chain with an impact on health, food and feed industry, economy, and international trade. Mycotoxin contamination is unavoidable and unpredictable and depends on a variety of environmental factors occurring pre- and post-harvest. Advances have occurred in the knowledge of mycotoxin occurrence, repartitioning during technological processes, and decontamination strategies. The future challenge to managing risks associated with mycotoxin contamination is the use of an integrated and a trans-disciplinary system approach. We trust that an integrated approach to mycotoxin risk by using innovative and improved strategic actions may have a positive impact for the entire food and feed chain: from field to industries, traders, regulators, relevant agencies, and consumers.
The objective of this collection is to share: standardized protocols for mycotoxins, emerging mycotoxins and modified mycotoxin detection, DNA-based assays for mycotoxigenic fungi monitoring, protocols for rapid and on-site analytical methods, genetic and biotechnological tools for reducing mycotoxin contamination, and decontamination methods. Last, but not least, this collection may represent a tool for additional knowledge and broad global access in the field of food and feed safety, and for promoting open networks for research collaborations.
