|Title:||Development and Validation of Analytical Methods for Mycotoxins in Food, Medicinal Herbs and Feed|

|Abstract:||Mycotoxins are natural contaminants defined as secondary toxic metabolites produced by fungi, and occur universally in food and feed. The definition of secondary toxic compounds is used to differentiate them from those compounds essential for all living organisms named primary metabolits, which are essential for the growth of the plant. Examples of primary metabolites are amino acids, nucleic acids and proteins.|
