Mycotoxins and Mushrooms

Mycotoxins are the secondary metabolites of fungi that have the capacity to impair animal health and productivity. Mycotoxins are a kind of pharmacologically active mold metabolites produced in specific way. , mycotoxins have no biochemical significance on fungal growth. They may develop a defence system against microorganisms, nematodes, animals and humans. Mycotoxin is used to describe pharmacologically active mold metabolites defined by vertebrate toxicity. Mycotoxins enter the body via ingestion of contaminated foods, but retention of toxigenic spores and direct dermal contact are also important routes.

Mushroom is a spore- bearing fleshy fruiting body of a fungus which grows above ground on soil or on its food source. Spore is the supreme microscopic feature for identification of mushrooms. Mushrooms are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and very low in sodium, yet they provide important nutrients, including selenium, potassium (8%), riboflavin, niacin, vitamin D and more.
