Chapter synopsis: This chapter reviews the range of techniques available for sustainable re-use of food waste. It addresses the critical safety issue of mycotoxin contamination of food waste. The chapter reviews factors affecting mycotoxin growth and the particular problem of masked mycotoxins. It also methods for detection and modelling of mycotoxin contamination, as well as processing methods to inactivate mycotoxins, with a particular focus on more environmentally-friendly techniques such as biological degradation and mycotoxin adsorbing agents.
