Mycotoxins can cause various adverse health effects and pose a severe health threat to humans and livestock, ranging from acute poisoning to long-term effects such as immune deficiency and cancer. About 400 different mycotoxins have been recorded in agricultural products, food, and feed, including aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, patulin, fumonisins, zearalenone, and nivalenol/deoxynivalenol. Additionally, emerging mycotoxin and masked mycotoxin have attracted growing attention due to their unknown hazardous effects, which is why it is particularly important to investigate the contamination status and control of mycotoxins in agricultural products and food. Clearing the contamination status of mycotoxin, e.g., occurrence, distribution, migration, transformation, and subduction by advanced determination techniques, is essential to highlight key control points. Controlling mycotoxin includes risk assessment, prevention before mycotoxin contamination, and control after their contamination by chemical, physical, and biological strategies.
We look forward to receiving contributions for this Special Issue that shed light on the different perspectives of mycotoxin contamination status and control. We welcome original research or review papers.
