Test Description

Aflatoxins are specific mycotoxins caused by Aspergillus species of fungi. It is crucial for effective testing practices to be utilised to accurately identify this mycotoxin group from which to form mitigation and control strategies within an ever increasing global supply chain.

Sesame seeds are the principal ingredient in Tahini, the popular sesame paste.  Aflatoxins occurring in the sesame seeds would therefore be present in the Tahini product.
