Deoxynivalenol (DON) is part of the mycotoxins family and is produced by the fungus Fusarium graminearum. DON frequently infects barley, rice, corn, cereals, wheat and other grains. DON is probably the best known and most common contaminant of grains and their subsequent products. Its occurrence in food and feed represent more than 90% of the total number of samples and it is a potential marker of the occurrence of other mycotoxins. Consumption of contaminated food by humans can result in nausea, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, headache, dizziness and fever.
