Aflatoxin Control

Helping to safeguard corn producers and buyers

Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring mycotoxin produced by two types of mold: aspergillus flavus and aspergillus parasiticus. Aspergillus flavus is common and widespread in nature and is most often found when certain grains are grown under stressful conditions such as drought or excessive precipitation level. Exposure to aflatoxins can cause liver damage and cancer if not immediately identified and addressed. Animals fed contaminated food can pass aflatoxin transformation products into eggs, milk products and meat.

Bureau Veritas are well positioned to help corn exporters and buyers minimise the risk of aflatoxin with industry leading, rapid testing: 

- Bureau Veritas provide aflatoxin control during the loading of the vessels or inbound truck discharge through quick tests (strip tests).
- Samples are taken at the conveyor belt and accurate tests are performed on each 1.000 MT, 2.000 MT or 5.000 MT increments, as per the client or food safety regulatory requirements.
- The 7-10 minute quick tests are quantitative strip tests, verifying the results from 3,0 ppb to 100,0 ppb.
- The service provides real time ‘Hotspot Determination & Identification’ with minimal disruption for buyer and seller.
