Ochratoxin Incidence in Poultry Feed Mixtures
Keywords:mycotoxins, poultry, feed mixtures, ELISA analysis
Ochratoxin is one of the most frequently occurring mycotoxins in food and feed. In humans and animals, it is the cause of health disorders, mycotoxicosis. Monitoring the content of ochratoxin in food and feed is an important part of preventive measures. This work was focused at determining the concentrations of ochratoxin in complete feed mixtures for broilers and turkeys by ELISA analysis. The presence of ochratoxin in concentrations lower than 2 ppb was confirmed in the examined samples. The ochratoxin content limit for supplementary and complete feed mixtures for poultry, which represents a value of 100 ppb in feed with a moisture content of 12%, was not exceeded in the samples.
