Abstract

Filamentous fungi (moulds) and their metabolites greatly influence barley, malt and beer quality and safety. Those that are capable of producing mycotoxins are a natural part of cereal ecosystems. The chapter begins by discussing evolution and impacts of fungal communities associated with the barley-to-beer production chain. It then highlights the most important mycotoxins and their production in the barley-to-beer-chain in order to identify the critical stages. Finally, this chapter describes some preventive actions.
