Aflatoxin

Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring mycotoxin product by species of Aspergillus such as A. flavus. In high concentrations it can be toxic to the liver and can result in aflatoxicosis when ingested through contaminated food products. The presence of Aspergillus species such as A. flavus in the environment is considered a risk factor for aflatoxicosis.
