Abstract

Aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) in milk and milk products is considered to pose certain hygienic risks for human health. These metabolites are not destroyed during the pasteurization and heating process. This study was undertaken to determine the presence and levels of aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) in Iranian white cheese consumed in Gilan province (Northern Iran). A total of 90 cheese samples was randomly obtained from retail outlets. ELISA technique was used to determine the presence and the level of AFM1. In 78 of the 90 cheese samples examined (86.66%), the presence of AFM1 was detected in concentrations between 7.2 - 413ng/l. The mean level of AFM1 in positive samples was 151.97 ng/l. AFM1 levels in 21 samples (23.33%) were higher than the maximum tolerance limit (250 ng/l) accepted by the European countries. Aflatoxin high concentration in milk and milk products cause widespread negative impact on public health and demonstrate considerable economic losses for producers. Therefore, it is necessary to establish strategies for reducing aflatoxin levels in animal feed and milk products. © IDOSI Publications, 2012.
