Corn/Maize is at risk for the presence of mycotoxins such as aflatoxin, vomitoxin (DON), Fumonisin, Zearalenone and ochratoxin. Global regulations set limits for maximum allowable levels of mycotoxins in maize as low as 2 parts per billion (ppb) for aflatoxin B1, 750ppb dexyvalenol (DON), 200ppb Fumonisin, 3ppb ochratoxin A and 60ppb of Zearalenone.
Coffee is among several food and agricultural commodities required to meet regulatory limits for mycotoxins such as Ochratoxin. SciAg supply on-site laboratory based machines for Ochratoxin A detection at levels as low as 2ppb, easily meeting EU and other export regulatory limits. Proactive monitoring ensures that only the highest quality of coffee reaches marketplace, establishing brand strength and trust across the global supply chain
Global regulatory limits for aflatoxin in milk and other dairy products are as low as 0.05 parts per billion, with even lower limits for food intended for children. SciAg supplies rapid, accurate test kits that deliver precise data to ensure dairy products are safe to consume.
Dried fruit is at risk for mycotoxins such as aflatoxin and Ochratoxin A which may be present in the fresh fruit counterpart prior to drying. EU countries enforce maximum allowable limits for dried fruits at levels as low as 5parts per billion (ppb) for aflatoxin B1 and 10ppb for Ochratoxin A.
Wheat, Rice, Barley and grain crops are accurately vulnerable to mycotoxins, a family of micro contaminants that pose a threat to quality, safety and profitability of grain based products. SciAg supplies a comprehensive line of GIPSA and AOAC approved mycotoxin testing solutions for feed and grains.
Peanut and Soy Bean contact with soil during cultivation may result in exposure to mycotoxin- producing mold and Aluminum. SciAg provides and supply testing kit for on-site laboratory detection so as to ensure the safety and marketability of peanut and soy bean.
