The aflatoxins are a group of toxic secondary metabolites produced by the fungi Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. The toxins of major concern are the aflatoxins Bl, B2, G1 and G2. They were first isolated in Great Britain from Brazilian nut meal in 1960 [68]. In the United States, these toxins were originally identified in cottonseed meal [3, 76] and peanut meal [76].
