applied-Mycology-agrotecnio

 

Goals

• Prevent the mycotoxin accumulation in foods and feeds through the food chain
• Reduce the public’s exposure to mycotoxins

Research Lines

• Mould ecophysiology- Predictive Mycology for food/feed safety
• Fate of mycotoxins during food processing
• Mycotoxin Exposure Assessment –biomonitoring
• Molecular tools applied to mycotoxigenic fungal species

Main activities

• Isolation and characterization of moulds from foods and feeds
• Determination of mycotoxins and metabolites
• Analysis of gene expression and phylogenetic studies
• Studies to assess the effect of food processing on mycotoxins
• Exposure assessment studies
• In vitro bioaccessibility studies

International impact

World leading position in mycotoxin prevention strategies in foods and feeds based on manipulation of environmental storage/field conditions for the most relevant mycotoxin-producing fungi, Europe leading position in predictive mycology applied to mycotoxins.
