Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to provide information on the different methods of aflatoxin (AFT) degradation in rice.

Design/methodology/approach

Crops that are affected by AFT contamination include cereals, oilseeds, spices and tree nuts. AFT in rice may harm health to great extent, and if not properly determined, may cause death. The production and occurrence of mycotoxins differ depending on the geographic and climatic and environmental conditions; however, these toxicants can never be removed completely from the food supply.

Findings

Mycotoxins are commonly present in cereal grains such as rice and are not completely destroyed during their cooking and processing.

Originality/value

No review on detoxification of AFT has been found in rice.
