Pre-harvest management is a critical practice for minimizing aflatoxin contamination of maize.

Food Control 2019 Feb;96:219-226

International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), P.O. Box 1041-00621, Nairobi, Kenya.

Maize, the main dietary staple in Kenya, is one of the crops most susceptible to contamination by aflatoxin. To understand sources of aflatoxin contamination for home grown maize, we collected 789 maize samples from smallholder farmers' fields in Eastern and South Western, two regions in Kenya representing high and low aflatoxin risk areas, respectively, and determined aflatoxin B (AFB) using ELISA with specific polyclonal antibodies. AFB was detected in 274 of the 416 samples from Eastern Kenya at levels between 0. Read More

Identification of single target taxon-specific reference assays for the most commonly genetically transformed crops using digital droplet PCR.

Food Control 2018 Nov;93:191-200

European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC), via E. Fermi 2749, 21027 Ispra, Italy.

Knowledge of the number of DNA sequences targeted by the taxon-specific reference assays is essential for correct GM quantification and is key to the harmonisation of measurement results. In the present study droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) was used to determine the number of DNA target copies of taxon-specific assays validated for real-time PCR for the four main genetically modified (GM) crops. The transferability of experimental conditions from real-time PCR to ddPCR was also explored, as well as the effect of DNA digestion. Read More

Tilapia fish microbial spoilage monitored by a single optical gas sensor.

Food Control 2018 Jul 3;89:72-76. Epub 2018 Feb 3.

Departamento de Química Fundamental, Instituto de Química da Universidade de São Paulo, Av. Prof. Lineu Prestes, 748, CEP 05508-000 São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

As consumption of fish and fish-based foods increases, non-destructive monitoring of fish freshness also becomes more prominent. Fish products are very perishable and prone to microbiological growth, not always easily detected by organoleptic evaluation. The analysis of the headspace of fish specimens through gas sensing is an interesting approach to monitor fish freshness. Read More

An integrated electrolysis - electrospray - ionization antimicrobial platform using Engineered Water Nanostructures (EWNS) for food safety applications.

Food Control 2018 Mar 29;85:151-160. Epub 2017 Sep 29.

Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology, Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard University, Boston, MA 02115, USA.

Engineered water nanostructures (EWNS) synthesized utilizing electrospray and ionization of water, have been, recently, shown to be an effective, green, antimicrobial platform for surface and air disinfection, where reactive oxygen species (ROS), generated and encapsulated within the particles during synthesis, were found to be the main inactivation mechanism. Herein, the antimicrobial potency of the EWNS was further enhanced by integrating electrolysis, electrospray and ionization of de-ionized water in the EWNS synthesis process. Detailed physicochemical characterization of these enhanced EWNS (eEWNS) was performed using state-of-the-art analytical methods and has shown that, while both size and charge remain similar to the EWNS (mean diameter of 13 nm and charge of 13 electrons), they possess a three times higher ROS content.

Ultra-Sensitive Lab-on-a-Chip Detection of Sudan I in Food using Plasmonics-Enhanced Diatomaceous Thin Film.

Food Control 2017 Sep 8;79:258-265. Epub 2017 Apr 8.

School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR, 97331, USA.

Sudan I is a carcinogenic compound containing an azo group that has been illegally utilized as an adulterant in food products to impart a bright red color to foods. In this paper, we develop a facile lab-on-a-chip device for instant, ultra-sensitive detection of Sudan I from real food samples using plasmonics-enhanced diatomaceous thin film, which can simultaneously perform on-chip separation using thin layer chromatography (TLC) and highly specific sensing using surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy. Diatomite is a kind of nature-created photonic crystal biosilica with periodic pores and was used both as the stationary phase of the TLC plate and photonic crystals to enhance the SERS sensitivity.

Novel nuclear barcode regions for the identification of flatfish species.

Food Control 2017 Sep;79:297-308

European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC), via E. Fermi 2749, 21027 Ispra, Italy.

The development of an efficient seafood traceability framework is crucial for the management of sustainable fisheries and the monitoring of potential substitution fraud across the food chain. Recent studies have shown the potential of DNA barcoding methods in this framework, with most of the efforts focusing on using mitochondrial targets such as the and genes. In this article, we show the identification of novel targets in the nuclear genome, and their associated primers, to be used for the efficient identification of flatfishes of the family. Read More

Innovative technologies to manage aflatoxins in foods and feeds and the profitability of application - A review.

Food Control 2017 Jun;76:127-138

International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Ibadan, Nigeria.

Aflatoxins are mainly produced by certain strains of , which are found in diverse agricultural crops. In many lower-income countries, aflatoxins pose serious public health issues since the occurrence of these toxins can be considerably common and even extreme. Aflatoxins can negatively affect health of livestock and poultry due to contaminated feeds. Read More

Assessment of critical steps of a GC/MS based indirect analytical method for the determination of fatty acid esters of monochloropropanediols (MCPDEs) and of glycidol (GEs).

Food Control 2017 Jul;77:65-75

European Commission, Joint Research Centre, Retieseweg 111, B-2440 Geel, Belgium.

Fatty acid esters of 2- and 3-chloropropanediol (MCPDEs) and fatty acid esters of glycidol (GEs) are commonly monitored in edible fats and oils. A recommendation issued by the European Commission emphasizes the need of generating data on the occurrence of these substances in a broad range of different foods. So far, analytical methods for the determination of MCPDEs and GEs are fully validated only for oils, fats and margarine. Read More

fatty acids in the Portuguese food market.

Food Control 2016 Jun;64:128-134

LAQV@REQUIMTE, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Porto, Rua de Jorge Viterbo Ferreira 228, 4050-313 Porto, Portugal.

Consistent evidence exist on the harmful health effects of industrial fatty acids (TFA). In order to have accurate data on TFA intake and implement adequate measures to reduce their intake, each country should have updated estimates of TFA content in the diet. The objective of the present study was to provide data on the TFA content in food commercialized in the Portuguese market. Read More

Consumer acceptability of interventions to reduce in the poultry food chain.

Food Control 2014 Jan;35(1):260-266

Reducing human cases has become a priority for the UK Government. However the public's views on acceptability of interventions to reduce in poultry production are poorly understood in the UK and in other countries around the world. The objective of the study was to investigate how increasing awareness and knowledge changes consumer acceptability of interventions that reduce human campylobacteriosis in the poultry food chain.

Common African cooking processes do not affect the aflatoxin binding efficacy of refined calcium montmorillonite clay.

Food Control 2014 Mar;37

Veterinary Integrative Biosciences Department, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, TAMU 4458, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA, 77843-4458.

Aflatoxins are common contaminants of staple crops, such as corn and groundnuts, and a significant cause of concern for food safety and public health in developing countries. Aflatoxin B (AFB) has been implicated in the etiology of acute and chronic disease in humans and animals, including growth stunting, liver cancer and death. Cost effective and culturally acceptable intervention strategies for the reduction of dietary AFB exposure are of critical need in populations at high risk for aflatoxicosis. Read More

Food Control 2007 May;18(5):566-575

Department of Food Hygiene and Control, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Mansoura University, Mansoura, Egypt.

This study was carried out to evaluate the microbiological quality and lipid oxidation of fresh salmon slices treated by dipping in 2.5% (w/v) aqueous solution of sodium acetate (NaA), sodium lactate (NaL), or sodium citrate (NaC) and stored at 1 degrees C. The results revealed that these salts were efficient (P < 0. Read More
