The mechanism involved in the disappearance of aflatoxin B1 from liquid medium by fungus mycelium has been investigated.
It is shown that mycelium and clay can adsorb aflatoxin dissolved in liquid media; in this way it is possible to detoxify contaminated solutions.
From this observation, it is suggested that adsorption should be adopted as a new technique in the removal of aflatoxin from contaminated liquid foodstuffs.
