In recent years consumers and the scientific community have become increasingly interested in food safety, making it a major focus among the objectives of the international institutions responsible for food safety monitoring, e.g. the European Union or the EFSA. Aspects attracting much attention are the colonization of food by microscopic fungi which, under aerobic conditions, produce toxic secondary metabolites known as mycotoxins, and the accumulation of these toxins in the food chain. Numerous studies of surveillance, detoxification, prevention, and toxicological aspects reported in the literature mostly concentrate on major mycotoxins such as aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, trichothecenes, and fumonisins; studies on toxic secondary metabolites of mycotoxins are less common or are only just beginning. Among the molecules of interest, the family of beauvericin and fusaproliferin is certainly the most interesting. The objective of this review is to summarize reported data and the methods used to extract and quantify beauvericin and fusaproliferin in food matrices.
