Mycotoxicology

Mycotoxicology is the branch of mycology that focuses on analysing and studying the toxins produced by fungi, known as mycotoxins. The mission of the Mycotoxicology Committee is to improve awareness of the public about health risks posed by mycotoxins contamination in the food and feed supply worldwide and promote public policies to reduce the exposure of human and animals to mycotoxins.

Mycotoxins are fungal poisons. This definition does not stipulate whether fungi are the targets of poisoning or are the producers of the poisons. The following is suggested as a useful working definition: Mycotoxins are natural products produced by fungi that evoke a toxic response when introduced in low concentration to higher vertebrates and other animals by a natural route. Some mycotoxins have multiple effects, and may cause phytotoxic and antimicrobial syndromes in addition to animal toxicity.
