Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a toxic metabolite produced by Aspergillus flavus and Penicillium genera. Ochratoxin A has a strong liver and kidney toxicity, and has teratogenic, mutagenic, and carcinogenic.
OTA is the second important and harmful mycotoxin in the family following with Aflatoxin flavus. As the OTA producing fungi exist widely in nature, especially higher yield in cereals and cereals products, coffee, cocoa contaminated with OTA, it has been potential threat for human health and development of animal husbandry.
