Most crops are infested with moulds that produce mycotoxins, which pose a serious health threat to humans and animals. Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by various filamentous fungi, including species from the genera Aspergillus, Fusarium and Penicillium.
The fungi typically grow on feedstuffs before or after harvesting and during storage. The growth of moulds and mycotoxin production occurs worldwide, especially in climates with high temperatures and humidity and where grains are harvested with high water content. Mycotoxins are invisible, tasteless, chemically stable, and survive high temperatures and many environmental conditions.
Studies indicate that up to 50% of the world's crops may be contaminated with mycotoxins, and more than 90% of feed samples contain one or more mycotoxins. Mycotoxins cause diverse effects on animals, such as carcinogenesis, hepatotoxicity, and neurotoxicity, as well as impaired reproduction, digestive disorders, immunomodulation, and decreased performance.
