1. Abstract, PeerJ, 2019 Biochar, that is, carbonized biomass similar to charcoal, has been used in acute medical treatment of animals for many centuries. Since 2010, livestock farmers increasingly use biochar as a regular feed supplement to improve animal health, increase nutrient intake efficiency...

  6. The manual provides guidance on the application of the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach to the prevention and control of mycotoxin contamination of foods and feed. After a brief introduction on the nature of mycotoxins and their effects on human and animal health, the...
  7. Abstract, The Journal of Veterinary Medical Science, 2014 Mycotoxins are fungal secondary metabolites that contaminate various feedstuffs and agricultural crops. The contamination of food by mycotoxins can occur before production, during storage, processing, transportation or marketing of the...
  8. Abstract, Toxins, 2017 Fusarium fungi are common plant pathogens causing several plant diseases. The presence of these molds in plants exposes crops to toxic secondary metabolites called Fusarium mycotoxins. The most studied Fusarium mycotoxins include fumonisins, zearalenone, and trichothecenes....
  9. Mycotoxins are naturally-occurring toxic metabolites produced by fungi (moulds). It is estimated that about a quarter of the world’s food crops, including many staple foods, are affected by mycotoxin-producing fungi. In the supply chain, mould growth can happen in the pre-harvest phase, and...
  10. In nature, microorganisms can cause disease by producing toxins in our food that make us sick. One group of these microorganisms is called molds and they can grow on foods and animal feed to the point that we can see them. While growing in grains, nuts, and fruits, some molds can produce harmful...
