Abstract

Fifteen maize samples from four markets and processing sites in Accra, Ghana were analysed for fumonisins B-1, B-2, and B-3. All samples contained fumonisins. Total fumonisin levels for 14 samples ranged from 70 to 4222 mug kg(-1). One sample of visibly mouldy kernels contained 52 670 mug kg(-1) total fumonisins. Mycological examination of the samples showed Aspergillus spp. as the most dominant fungi (76.4%) followed by Penicillium spp. (19.9%). Fusarium formed 2.6% with Fusarium verticillioides as the predominant Fusarium species. Thirty-two Fusarium strains representing five species isolated from the maize samples were tested for the production of fumonisins in maize substrates. From 95% (21 of 22) of the F. verticillioides strains tested, all three types of fumonisins were produced. Total fumonisin levels ranged from 127 to 11 052 mug g(-1). Additional studies on maize samples from 15 processing sites in Accra revealed a co-occurrence of both fumonisins and aflatoxins in 53% (8 of 15) of the samples. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
