This chapter discusses papers describing mycotoxin migration from rotten to unaffected parts of fruits and vegetables. It is known that mycotoxins remain in fruits even when the fungal mycelium producing them has been eliminated and, depending on the characteristics of the fruit, mycotoxins can diffuse into sound tissues. Mycotoxin diffusion from moldy to unaffected parts of fruit and vegetables is reviewed in relation to the species of contaminating fungus; the size of the rotten area; the distance from the affected area; the characteristic consistency, and composition of fruit or vegetable pulp.

Abstract

This chapter discusses papers describing mycotoxin migration from rotten to unaffected parts of fruits and vegetables. It is known that mycotoxins remain in fruits even when the fungal mycelium producing them has been eliminated and, depending on the characteristics of the fruit, mycotoxins can diffuse into sound tissues. Mycotoxin diffusion from moldy to unaffected parts of fruit and vegetables is reviewed in relation to the species of contaminating fungus; the size of the rotten area; the distance from the affected area; the characteristic consistency, and composition of fruit or vegetable pulp.
