Risk to human and animal health related to the presence of 4,15‐diacetoxyscirpenol in food and feed

Risk to human and animal health related to the presence of 4,15‐diacetoxyscirpenol in food and feed

Published on: Thu, 16 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0200 4,15‐Diacetoxyscirpenol (DAS) is a mycotoxin primarily produced by Fusarium fungi and occurring predominantly in cereal grains. As requested by the European Commission, the EFSA Panel on Contaminants in the Food Chain (CONTAM) assessed the risk of DAS to human and animal health related to its presence in food and feed. Very limited information was available on toxicity and on toxicokinetics in experimental and farm animals. Due to the limitations in the avai...
