According to the BfR, the spread of the mould and its toxins is possible the faster the more liquid the food (for example compote, juice, soft peaches etc.). “Such infested food must be thrown away”.
Experts advise against consuming mouldy food. For example the Federal Institut for risk evaluation (BfR) writes in a folder to mold fungus poisons (Mykotoxinen) in food: “Already moldy food immediately dispose and no longer openly leave, because mold is “contagious”.
Some mold toxins can lead to health problems such as vomiting and diarrhea, but also to liver and kidney damage or suppress the body’s own defenses. (ad)
