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.Keeping the Rice Trade Healthy (313 KB)
