STSM of WG3
STSM title: STSM 3-WG8. Food safety, health promoting, sensorial perception and consumers’ behaviour STSM start and end date: 10/04/2020 to 30/04/2020. Grantee name: Elizabet Janić Hajnal
Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by a wide variety of filamentous fungi, including species from the genera Aspergillus, Fusarium, and Penicillium. They cause economic losses and represent a significant hazard to the malting cereal processing chain. Basic raw materials for malt production are malting cereals (barley and wheat), the quality of which is of primary significance to manufacture consumer products of excellent quality. National and European legislative institutions laid down the maximum tolerable levels of selected mycotoxins in cereals in order to protect consumers from health risks associated
with the intake of mycotoxins. Bio-preservation of grains refers to extended shelf life and enhanced safety of foods using microorganisms or their metabolites. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) play a key role in food fermentations where they not only contribute to the development of the desired sensory properties in the final product but also to their microbiological safety.
The main task of STSM was to analyse the antifungal activity of lactic acid bacteria for Fusarium mycotoxins reduction in malting wheat grains.This study was accomplished under COVID-19 circumstances.Institute of Food Technology, University of Novi Sad, Bul. cara Lazara 1, 21000 Novi Sad, Serbia. firstname.lastname@example.org
