Abstract: Biotoxins are a group of significant biogenicactive compounds that are usually present in trace amounts in a matrix, and they become the focus of attention in the fields of food safety and medicine research for their toxicities and bioactivities. The biotoxins in food are mainly mycotoxins and marine biotoxins. This review introduced mainly the source, structures and toxicities of aflatoxins (AFs), fumonisins (FBs), trichothecenes (TCTs), zearalenone (ZON), ochratoxin and patulin (PAT) of mycotoxins, which are highly toxic and common in foods. In addition, the classification of marine toxins has also been introduced. Moreover, the detection methods of biotoxins were also introduced including immunological methods, enzyme activity inhibition assay methods, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), mass spectrometry (MS), biosensor methods, and aptamer methods, which are intended to provide reference for the study of biotoxins in food. The detection of food biotoxins can prevent food poisoning and control food quality.


Key words: biotoxins, mycotoxins, marine biotoxins, determination methods
