Fumonisins are mycotoxins produced by the fungus Fusarium moniliforme. Frequent, almost universal inhabitants of corn, fumonisin B1 and fumonisin B2 are present in most corn samples tested, often at greater than 1 ppm. Fumonisin is thought to cause equine leukoencephalomalacia in horses, swine pulmonary edema, and human esophageal cancer. T he FDA/USDA Working Group on Fumonisin advises levels of less than 4 ppm for products for human consumption, less than 5 ppm in horse feed, less than 20 ppm for swine feed and less than 30 ppm for cattle feed. The European Union has provided the following recommendations:

  • Maize-based breakfast cereal and snacks 0.8 ppm
  • Maize grits/flour/meal and refined maize semolina 1 ppm
  • Other maize-based foods for direct human consumption 1 ppm
  • Processed maize-based foods for infants and young children and baby food 0.2 ppm
  • Unprocessed maize not intended for wet milling 4 ppm

Using monoclonal antibody-based affinity chromatography, FumoniTest™ from VICAM is the trusted fumonisin test that produces precise numerical results. FumoniTest is safe and simple. It can be performed in less than 15 minutes and requires no special skills. FumoniTest is also ideal as the cleanup step for any HPLC analysis for precise results in parts per million. With FumoniTest you have the best of all worlds: sensitivity, simplicity, and speed—quick tests for parts per million levels. FumoniTest has a long shelf life. In fact, no other test comes close for speed, quantification, and economy.
