Ecological and sanitary significance of micromycetes brought from abroad with various foodstuffs of floral origin
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
During 2003–2006, micromycetes recorded on a variety of raw materials and foodstuffs of plant origin brought into Lithuania and sold here were investigated; their species composition was determined, their abilities to synthesize and excrete secondary metabolites and spread in the environment were studied. Many micromycetes brought together with raw materials and foodstuff are able to adapt to new ecological conditions, penetrate into commercial, industrial and residential premises. They enrich the species diversity of local micromycetes, extend their functional, destructive abilities, which are not always favourable to people; they can also cause economic losses as well as be hazardous to the health of man, as some micromycetes can cause diseases of respiratory organs, be causative agents of allergies, skin diseases, or even deep mycoses of some organs. Toxic secondary metabolites excreted by microorganisms worsen the quality of food, cause permanent hazard to its safety. Basing on the research results, the above-mentioned issues are discussed in the article.
