Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by a fungus. They are naturally occurring toxins produced by certain molds (fungi) and can also be found in food. The molds grow on a variety of different crops often under warm and humid conditions.
Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is one of the most potent naturally occurring carcinogens and is the most toxic member of this group of mycotoxins.
