Dried fruit is at risk for mycotoxins such as aflatoxin and ochratoxin A which may be present in the fresh fruit counterpart prior to drying. EU countries enforce maximum allowable limits for dried fruits at levels as low as 5 parts per billion (ppb) for aflatoxin B1 and 10 ppb for ochratoxin A. VICAM’s complete family of AOAC and USDA approved methods ensure rapid, actionable data to support dried fruit exports worldwide.
