Patulin Testing Solutions

Patulin is a potent fungal toxin that occurs in damaged and rotten fruits and fruit juice made from poor quality fruits.

Patulin is a potential carcinogen known to cause symptoms such as hemorrhaging in the digestive tract of cattle. It is formed by Aspergillus and Penicillium species and occurs mostly in fruits such as apples, peaches, pears and grapes as well as in vegetables.

Most countries have established regulations to protect consumers from the harmful effects of patulin intake. The European Union for instance has established maximum levels for fruit juices, solid apples and baby foods other than cereal–based foods. The US FDA has also established action levels for patulin in apple juice.
