About Ochratoxin A
Ochratoxin A, or OTA, is a nephrotoxin that can cause acute and chronic conditions in the kidneys of humans and other mammals, as well as have effects on fetal development and the immune system.
OTA is produced by several fungi, including those from the genera Penicillium and Aspergillus and they contaminate a variety of food commodities throughout the world.
Ochratoxin A is known to manifest itself mainly during storage. The growth of OTA can occur as a result of damage to the foodstuffs caused by equipment, physical interactions or insects. The damage caused provides a platform for the fungus to grow and therefore the toxin to be omitted.
