What is Aflatoxin B1?
1. The Definition of Aflatoxin B1
is the most carcinogenic chemical substance. Aflatoxin B1
has strong toxicity to humans and several animals, and its toxic effect is mainly to damage the liver.Aflatoxin B1
is the most common and most harmful in natural food. The AQSIQ stipulates that aflatoxin B1
is one of the mandatory inspection items for most foods.
Generally speaking, aflatoxin b1
is found in many natural foods, such as corn, peanuts, peanut oil
, beans, fermented foods, etc., so there are many food categories involved.
2. The characteristics of Aflatoxin B1
The pure product of aflatoxin B1
is colorless crystal with a relative molecular weight of 312.27. It is hardly soluble in water but easily soluble in oil and a variety of polar organic solvents, such as chloroform, methanol, ethanol, propanol, ethylene dimethyl amide, insoluble in petroleum ether, ether and hexane. Generally, it is stable in neutral solution, but decomposes slightly in strong acid solution, and decomposes rapidly in strong alkali solution with pH 9-10. Aflatoxin is relatively stable to light, heat, and can only be lysed when heated to 280-300 °C. After autoclaving for 2 hours, the toxicity will be reduced by 25%-33% and by 50% in 4 hours. Aflatoxin B1
fluoresces blue under ultraviolet light, and ultraviolet light is destructive to low concentrations of aflatoxin B1

The hazards of Aflatoxin B1
The absorption and excretion of aflatoxin in the body are faster. If it is not a continuous intake, when the intake of a relatively small amount of food containing AFB1, after about 10 days, it will be excreted by various excretory systems. If the intake is too large, it will cause AFB1 acute poisoning and liver damage. AFB1 is currently known to have three strong substances: mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, and teratogenicity.
AFB1 mainly harms the liver and kidneys of humans and animals. Symptoms of poisoning mainly reflect various symptoms of hepatocellular disease, liver necrosis, and liver cancer. It is absorbed and transformed in various gastrointestinal systems in the body, and transformed into various homologues of AFB1, such as AFM1, AFM2, AFP1, AFQ, etc., through various enzymatic demethylation, epoxidation, and hydroxylation reactions. These transformed substances can bind to various proteins or enzymes in the body, affect or change the properties of eggs, interfere with normal protein mechanisms, and cause cell cancer.
The toxicity of aflatoxin B1
is 30 times toxic than vomitoxin
, and 20 times toxic than zearalenone
. The acute toxicity of aflatoxin B1
is 10 times that of potassium cyanide and 68 times that of arsenic. The chronic toxicity can induce cancer. The carcinogenic ability is 75 times that of dimethylnitrosamine and 900 times that of dimethylaminobenzene. Human primary liver cancer may also be related to aflatoxin.
When people ingest large amounts of aflatoxin B1
, acute poisoning can occur, including acute hepatitis, hemorrhagic necrosis, hepatocyte steatosis and bile duct hyperplasia. Continuous intake of a small amount can cause chronic poisoning, growth failure, fibrous lesions, and proliferation of fibrous tissue.
Poultry: Reduced feed intake, body weight gain and feed conversion rate; infertility, miscarriage; pulmonary edema, increased susceptibility to disease. Pigs: Reduced feed intake, body weight gain and feed conversion rate; infertility abortion; pulmonary edema, increased susceptibility to disease.
