Rice Testing

Rice

Like other field crops, rice is vulnerable to the presence of mycotoxins when specific mold species appear during growth, harvest, storage or processing. Aflatoxin B1 is highly toxic - even at very low concentrations -resulting in regulatory limits in most importing countries as low as 2 parts per billion (ppb). VICAM offers comprehensive screening and detection solutions to ensure a safe, marketable rice supply worldwide.
