All relevant toxin producing fungi, their natural occurence, the possible mycotoxicosis, further the biochemical and physiological effects of mycotoxins, their chemical data and toxicity are treated here comprehensively. For each fungi, reference is given to the food at risk. All foods which have been reported to be contaminated with mycotoxins are listed, including data on the degree of contamination, the concentration of the toxins and the country of origin and/or detection of the contaminated food.

Written by the world's leading scientists and spanning over 400 articles in three volumes, the Encyclopedia of Food Microbiology, Second Edition is a complete, highly structured guide to current knowledge in the field. Fully revised and updated, this encyclopedia reflects the key advances in the field since the first edition was published in 1999 The articles in this key work, heavily illustrated and fully revised since the first edition in 1999, highlight advances in areas such as genomics and food safety to bring users up-to-date on microorganisms in foods. Topics such as DNA sequencing and E. coli are particularly well covered. With lists of further reading to help users explore topics in depth, this resource will enrich scientists at every level in academia and industry, providing fundamental information as well as explaining state-of-the-art scientific discoveries. This book is designed to allow disparate approaches (from farmers to processors to food handlers and consumers) and interests to access accurate and objective information about the microbiology of foods Microbiology impacts the safe presentation of food. From harvest and storage to determination of shelf-life, to presentation and consumption. This work highlights the risks of microbial contamination and is an invaluable go-to guide for anyone working in Food Health and Safety Has a two-fold industry appeal (1) those developing new functional food products and (2) to all corporations concerned about the potential hazards of microbes in their food products

For millennia, the presence of fungi in food has been both boon and bane to food stores. Fungi can spoil large quantities of food and produce dangerous toxins that threaten human health; however, fungal spoilage in certain foods can produce a unique, highly prized food source and there are some very effective fungal derived medicines. A thorough understanding of the vast body of knowledge relating to food mycology requires an inclusive volume that covers both the beneficial and detrimental roles of fungi in our food supply. Richly illustrated with full-color images and edited by award winning scientists, Food Mycology: A Multifaceted Approach to Fungi and Food is a comprehensive overview of the many aspects of mycology research. Beginning with post-harvest problems that can include the fungal infection of living crops, the book discusses the high level of communication between plants and fungi and novel techniques currently used to detect a fungal invasion. The second part addresses the fungal spore as a distribution vehicle and the ability of certain spores to survive pasteurization. Certain fungi produce dangerous mycotoxins and part three explains this mechanism, its effects, and the precise identification of mycotoxin-producing fungi. The fourth part considers the parameters and limitations of fungal hyperproduction of enzymes and other metabolites. Devoting considerable space to fungal spoilage, part five explores fungal growth dynamics, molecular detection techniques, and the role of fungal volatiles highlighting wine, cheese, and sausages as exemplar products. The book concludes with edible fungi as tempe, mycoprotein, and the edible fungi hallmark, the fruit bodies. Bringing together many different areas in the study of fungi in food, Food Mycology: A Multifaceted Approach to Fungi and Food provides a rare single source reference to the still underestimated role of fungi in daily food.

With the world’s growing population, the provision of a safe, nutritious and wholesome food supply for all has become a major challenge. To achieve this, effective risk management based on sound science and unbiased information is required by all stakeholders, including the food industry, governments and consumers themselves. In addition, the globalization of the food supply requires the harmonization of policies and standards based on a common understanding of food safety among authorities in countries around the world. With some 280 chapters, the Encyclopedia of Food Safety provides unbiased and concise overviews which form in total a comprehensive coverage of a broad range of food safety topics, which may be grouped under the following general categories: History and basic sciences that support food safety; Foodborne diseases, including surveillance and investigation; Foodborne hazards, including microbiological and chemical agents; Substances added to food, both directly and indirectly; Food technologies, including the latest developments; Food commodities, including their potential hazards and controls; Food safety management systems, including their elements and the roles of stakeholders. The Encyclopedia provides a platform for experts from the field of food safety and related fields, such as nutrition, food science and technology and environment to share and learn from state-of-the art expertise with the rest of the food safety community. Assembled with the objective of facilitating the work of those working in the field of food safety and related fields, such as nutrition, food science and technology and environment - this work covers the entire spectrum of food safety topics into one comprehensive reference work The Editors have made every effort to ensure that this work meets strict quality and pedagogical thresholds such as: contributions by the foremost authorities in their fields; unbiased and concise overviews on a multitude of food safety subjects; references for further information, and specialized and general definitions for food safety terminology In maintaining confidence in the safety of the food supply, sound scientific information is key to effectively and efficiently assessing, managing and communicating on food safety risks. Yet, professionals and other specialists working in this multidisciplinary field are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with developments outside their immediate areas of expertise. This single source of concise, reliable and authoritative information on food safety has, more than ever, become a necessity

Increasing public demand for adequate and safe food supply has led to extensive development in the field of plant-animal production, food processing, quality and safety procedures, food analysis and control and regulations. However, safety of food can only be guaranteed by the integration of control systems in the complete food chain "from stable to table".This book covers the total agri-food chain. The first section includes a chapter giving a clear overview of the food production chain, followed by chapters about distinct safety risk factors (biological, chemical, physical and others) occuring in the agri-food chain. The third section deals with various systems to handle these risk factors. It includes a chapter on the various quality assurance systems, a detailed chapter on HACCP, as well as on risk management, modelling of safety, and tracking and tracing. The last section includes chapters on the different stakeholders (consumer, legislation, ethics) that are concerned with food safety.The book is aimed at supporting educational programmes on safety in agri-food chains in higher education and at the academic level. It can also be used as a handbook in food industry and agri-business.
