Destruction of Aflatoxins During Fermentation and By-Product Isolation from Artificially Contaminated Grains.

Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, and G2 were added to corn, wheat, and corn-milo fermentation mixtures at levels of 1000 micrograms each per 100 g grain mixture. The degree to which aflatoxins would persist during fermentation, isolation of distiller's protein concentrate, and by-products such as residue, syrup, and whey were then determined. The data indicated a loss after fermentation of slightly greater than 60%. Further process treatments involved in the isolation of distiller's protein concentrate led to a destruction of total aflatoxins in excess of 90%.
