Abstract

In the recent years, food safety has known an increasingly interest from both the consumers and the scientific community, and this resulted in a major focus among the objectives of the international institutions responsible for the food safety monitoring e.g. the European Union or the EFSA. One of the aspects that are of greater attention is the food colonization by microscopic fungi in aerobic conditions producing toxic secondary metabolites known as mycotoxins and their accumulation in the food chain. While numerous studies in the literature on surveillance, detoxification, prevention, and toxicological aspects are mostly concentrated on major mycotoxins such as aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, trichothecenes and fumonisins, secondary metabolites toxic products of mycotoxins especially are less known or emerging. Among these molecules the family of beauvericin and fusaproliferin are certainly the most interesting ones. This review aims to summarize the reported data and analyse the methodologies to extract and quantify beauvericin and fusaproliferin in food matrices.
