DEGRADATION OF AFLATOXIN B1 BY Neurospora sp ISOLATED FROM ONCOM

Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is the most common mycotoxin found in foods in tropical countries like Indonesia. Aflatoxins are relatively resistant to common processing conditions. Detoxification would be the important step in food processing to reduce or eliminate AFB1. Microorganisms such as molds (Rhizopus oligosporus, Rhizopus oryzae, Aspergillus oryzae) and bacteria (Flavobacterium aurantiacum, Lactobacillus, Propionibacteria) have been reported to degrade aflatoxins. Oncom is an Indonesian fermented food produced from mold fermentation of peanut press cake by Neurospora sp. After steaming, peanut press cake is inoculated with the mold. It is common that peanut have high contamination of AFB1, therefore research on the AFB1 degradation ability of mold used for fermentation is very important in order to minimize toxic effect of AFB1 in oncom
