Among those molds were important food spoilage molds like Aspergillus and Penicillium, along with some notorious producers of mycotoxins (allergens). Biango-Daniels said, “This new finding contradicts the conventional wisdom that salts are sterile ingredients.” The research discussed the importance of knowing the risk that comes with using sea salt during food production. For the study, the researchers used seven different commercial salts. They then extracted living fungi from the sea salts, which was grown in the lab for identification. The fungi discovered in the salt have the potential to spoil food when used as an ingredient and can introduce mycotoxins when consumed.
