Citação: Viegas S, Faria T, Viegas C. Fungal contamination in feed production in Portugal: what to expect regarding mycotoxins contamination? In ICFC 2015 – International Conference on Food Contaminants: challenges in chemical mixtures, Instituto Nacional de Saúde Dr. Ricardo Jorge (Lisbon), 13th and 14th April 2015.
Resumo: Fungi on crops produce mycotoxins in the field, during handling, and in storage. Exposure of animals and humans are usually through consumption of contaminated feedstuffs or foods. Molds can grow and mycotoxins can be produced either pre-harvest or post-harvest, during storage, transport, processing, or feeding. Worldwide, approximately 25% of crops are affected by mycotoxins annually. Because of this is possible to concluded that mycotoxins occur frequently in a variety of feedstuffs that are given to animals causing several effects: subclinical losses in performance, increases the incidence of disease and reduced reproductive performance. Aim of study: A study was developed intending to know environmental fungal contamination in a Portuguese feed production unit. Corn, wheat and soybeans were the most common cereals used in the feed production.
