Description

Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a toxin produced by Aspergillus ochraceus and Penicillium verrucosum. It is one of the most abundant food-contaminating mycotoxins in the world. Aspergillus species proliferate in warm humid conditions while the Penicillium verrucosum species is generally associated with moderate climates. Ochratoxin fungi are ubiquitous and the potential for contamination of foodstuffs and animal feed is widespread. OTA has been found in many products such as maize, barley, wheat, oats, rye, dried fruit, grapes, wine, cocoa and coffee. Unlike the EU, the US and Canada have not set action, advisory, or guidance levels for OTA but do recognize it as a harmful contaminant.
