The aim of this work was to identify the occurrence of deoxynivalenol (DON) and ochratoxin A (OTA) in flour; to estimate the reduction of contamination levels in French and Vienna bread manufactured with this flour, and the exposure to these toxins through the consumption of these products. OTA was not detected in the flour. The median reduction of DON between flour and products were, for French bread 33% and for Vienna bread 58.5%. A low exposure (the highest percentage of the Tolerable Daily Intake was 6.54% and the lowest 0.45%) was estimated due to the low contamination level: French bread median was 35.5 μg/kg and Vienna bread 22.0 μg/kg. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
