Abstract:

Bissap (Hibiscus sabdariffa), Gnamankoudji, (Zingiber officinale rhizomes) and Tomi (Tamarindus indica) was identified as the main traditional non-alcoholic drinks consumed by the people of Daloa. For the study it’s a question of having information relating to the contamination of these traditional drinks by mycotoxins such as the patulin recognized toxic for the health of the consumers. To do this, 30 samples of these soft drinks were taken from vendors on the streets of the town of Daloa. The detection and quantification of patulin was carried out using a HPLC with UV detector according to the ISO 8128 method. The results of the analyzes show that non-alcoholic artisanal drinks have fairly high levels of contamination with average PAT contamination levels exceeding 200 µg/L for tomi, bissap and 150 µg/L for gnamakoudji. These average concentrations observed are not in conformity with the EC regulation N°1881/2006 of 19/12/2006 which fixes the maximum limits of 50 µg of PAT/kg in fruit juices and spirit drinks. Thus the consumption of its drinks on the long topic can present a real risk for the human health.
