DON also referred to as Vomitoxin, is a naturally occurring mycotoxin produced by several species of Fusarium mold. This mold grows best in cool wet conditions from flowering time on. DON causes vomiting, diarrhea, reduced weight gain, hemorrhaging throughout the digestive tract, infertility and immune suppression. DON is found in all major commodity grain crops in the United States. The two cereal grains most often contaminated with DON are corn and wheat. Although the susceptibility of mycotoxin poisoning differs among species, age, amount of contamination; the industry standard for vomitoxin is no more the 2.0 ppm.
