Title

Potential of Cinnamon cassia Oil for Safety of Grains Contaminated with Aflatoxin Induced by Aspergillus flavus

Abstract

ABSTRACT Fungal infestation is one of the common and serious problems faced during gain storage. Aspergillus flavus is one of the major storage fungi producing aflatoxins, which is highly toxic, carcinogenic and shows ill-effects on human and animal health. Inhibitory effect of Cinnamon cassia oil against the mycelial growth and aflatoxins production by A. flavus has been studied in this investigation. A. flavus was found dominant fungi during maize grain storage. Cinnamon cassia oil showed significant antifungal activity against A. flavus when evaluated by agar well diffusion method. Monitoring of aflatoxin levels in grains is a management methodology and it can be applied during storage. Aflatoxins were assessed qualitatively and quantitatively by adopting TLC and HPLC methods in Cinnamon cassia oil treated and non-treated grains. Cinnamon oil is a natural essential oil that does not show ill effects to human and animal health. Aflatoxin production was considerably declined by application of Cinnamon cassia oil during storage. Cinnamon cassia oil has fungi toxic potential against Aspergillus flavus. It may be used as fungicidal agrochemical during seed storage.
