G. cheese production where two immiscible phases (cheese and cheese whey) are obtained from milk. Aflatoxin M1 is distributed between these phases; since the cheese fraction is much smaller than the whey fraction (10 litres milk for 1 kg cheese) 2. The Challenge of Mycotoxins 39 aflatoxin M1 usually has a higher concentration in cheese than in milk (van Egmond, 1989). However, aflatoxins are generally insoluble in water and so may also dissolve more readily in the lipid rich cheese fraction. Enzymes and microorganisms are used frequently in food processing and may transform mycotoxins into other compounds with less or unknown toxicity (CAST, 2003).

High concentrations have been detected in developing countries, especially in the more temperate Highland regions (CAST, 2003). ZEA is frequently found in corn, wheat, barley and grain sorghum from the USA. Low levels of fumonisins are extremely common throughout the world (CAST, 2003). However, in some cases more than 5 mg kg−1 is observed. They are produced by the fungus F. verticillioides which occurs worldwide and is found frequently on maize. It is prevalent in the USA, Canada, Brazil, South Africa, Austria, Italy, and France.

Some authors have stated that there is clear evidence that pressure mediating death is not first order and inactivation curves often present pronounced survivor tails. Thus the D and Z concepts commonly used in thermal processing cannot be usefully applied to describe pressure processes. Current industrial applications of high pressure treated food include: ● ● ● ● ● Jams, fruit dressing, fruit sauce (topping), yoghurt, fruit jelly by the following processing conditions: 400 MPa, 2-20 min, 20˚C; Grapefruit juice, 120-400 MPa, 2-20 min, 20˚C; Mandarin juice, 300-400 MPa, 2-3 min, 20˚C; Beef (tenderization only), 100-150 MPa, 30-40 min, 20˚C; Rice cake, 400 MPa, 45-70˚C, 10 min.
