Zearalenone, also known as F-2 mycotoxin, is produced by some Fusarium and Gibberella species. Its potency is borne out of the fact it mimics estrogens and can have an adverse affect the reproductive system in animals. If ZEA is detected in livestock it can have a negative financial impact as herds can be depleted due to reduced reproduction.
As Zearalenone forms on commodities such as maize, which is commonly used as a food source for poultry, cattle and swine, food safety professionals are keen to monitor for ZEA to reduce its impact on livestock yield.
In addition, ZEA can contaminate wheat crops. As wheat is normally milled into flour and used in many foodstuffs, such as bread, pasta etc. Producers and processors of the raw wheat commodity are legally obliged to ensure food is safe for human consumption.
Humid conditions and low temperatures favour the production of this mycotoxin, hence why it is important to monitor for Zearalenone and other mycotoxins in grain stores.
