Don’t ignore Aflatoxin contamination in pulses


Research on contamination by aflatoxin and other mycotoxins has been concentrated in cereal grains, ignoring pulses, vegetables and fruits. Consumed daily by millions, pulses do contain a small concentration of mycotoxins, which when consumed regularly can lead to health issues in the long run. Research must therefore focus on pulses too and also factor in the entire food system and value chain from field to market and the pantry as well as social class, geography and storage conditions.
