Mycotoxins are fungal metabolites which can cause disease or death in humans and domestic animals. Since the discovery of mycotoxins, some species of fungi have emerged as a significant health issue because of their potential to produce mycotoxins, thereby resulting in a public health concern. The most important mycotoxins are aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, fumonisins, deoxynivalenol, and zearalenone. This chapter provides an overview of the fungal sources of these mycotoxins, their ecology, the occurrence in foods, the significance in human health, methods for their analysis, and strategies to manage the risk from these contaminants.
