Abstract

Previously we reported aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) concentrations in dairy milk of different animal species. Yet, there are no reports of aflatoxin M2 (AFM2) concentrations in raw milk and milk products of dfferent animal species. Aflatoxin M2 levels are usually very low or un-detectable using ELISA or chromatography techniques. The reasons of low concentrations of AFM2 in milk and milk products still remain obscure and controversial. In this study, variable AFM2 concentrations are being reported in milk of different animal species with the highest levels reported in goats milk.
