Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of molds, with huge structural diversity, which require various complex protocols of extraction and detection for their analysis. Depending on specific substances and concentration, mycotoxins are carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic and immunosuppressive.

Roughly 25 percent of the world's food production contains mycotoxins, as indicated by The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Mycotoxins can be present in cereals but also in fruits, nuts and other food items.
