Mycotoxin Testing

SGS’s mycotoxin analysis can ensure the compliance of your products with the strict international regulations protecting animal and human health.

Mycotoxins are toxic metabolites produced by several strains of fungi found on food and feed products. They are often invisible, tasteless, and chemically stable at high temperatures and during long periods of storage. Because some of the mycotoxins are highly toxic, they can have a detrimental impact on health, which is why you need reliable testing for your products.

To perform mycotoxin in food and feed analysis, our laboratories have world class testing capabilities that can ensure your products measure up to health and safety regulations. Using an enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay (ELISA) or liquid chromatography techniques, we identify whether mycotoxins are present and, if so, in what quantities. 

Mycotoxins are often associated with:

  • Dried fruit
  • Fruit and fruit juices
  • Coffee
  • Grains
  • Cereals
  • Nuts
  • Spices
  • Oilseeds
  • Oils and starches

Ensuring that your products are within safe limits means that you not only comply with food safety regulations, but also avoid the potential economic losses associated with mycotoxin contamination. These can include the loss of crops or livestock, reduced animal productivity, compensation claims, and the subsequent effects of contamination on domestic and international trade.
