Risk assessment conducted by The Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food (2013) states that the Norwegian population is daily exposed to the mycotoxin deoxynivalenol (DON) from ingesting contaminated cereal products. In this project we will study the fate of free and bound (“masked”) forms of mycotoxins in wheat and oats through processing techniques relevant to the Norwegian industry. The ultimate goal of the project is to ensure production of safe and high quality cereal products with respect to mycotoxin contamination.
