Mycoflora of Cereal Flakes
Abstract:Twelve brands of cereal flakes were examined for their qualitative and quantitative mold contamination. Higher fungal counts were observed in the case of two wheat and one oat flake sample (s) while the remaining brands showed minor contamination rates. The fungal flora consisted of 64 different species belonging to 23 fungal genera. Fungi of the genus Eurotium (4 species), Aspergillus (7 spp.) and Penicillium (25 spp.) predominated on most samples.
