ABSTRACT

Surveillance was conducted during the year 2016/2017 in Dar es Salaam region, Tanzania to determine the levels of fumonisins contamination in pre-packed cereal-legume complementary flour.

The concentration of fumonisin B1 ranged from 2. to 60 669µg/kg (mean 2371.8 µg/kg), fumonisin B2 ranged from 5.74 to 15 758 µg/kg (mean 901.2 µg/kg) and the total fumonisins (FB1 + FB2) ranged from 8.2 to 61 486.8 µg/kg (mean 3 273.0 µg/kg). The levels of fumonisin B1 and total fumonisins exceeded the maximum limit of 2000 µg/kg for processed cereals and products intended for human consumption. There was significant difference (p
