Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by different fungi when they infect food and

feed commodities at large during pre‐ and post‐harvest. Different types of mycotoxins like

aflatoxins, fumonicins, ochratoxins, trichothecenes, patulins etc. are widely been reported in

agricultural commodities and studied. Mycotoxin studies will include the survey of these

mycotoxin contaminations in different food and feed commodities across the globe. The

identification of different mycotoxins in food and feed commodities will provide scientific

support to various stake holders like scientists, food policy makers, and common public. Issues

related to the management of mycotoxins with respect to pre‐ and post‐harvest control will be

jointly addressed with the inputs from myotoxin research communities. Detoxification of

mycotoxins will help the food and feed industries to address the contamination issues and


ify them before being sent to market for consumer consumption. Different advanced

detection techniques will pave a way for the food industrial applications to detect the

mycotoxins effectively, thereby preventing them entering the food chain. Toxicology issues with

different mycotoxins can be used by clinicians and veterinary surgeons in the treatment of

diseases with respect to mycotoxins.
