Eradicating Aflatoxin

Simply sprinkling vitamin C over roasted nuts is not effective

because the molds have penetrated the surface. Rinse the

nuts in water first (a lot of mold is removed in this simple way).

Cover the nuts with water, add about tsp. vitamin C powder

(for a pint of nuts) and mix. Let stand for 5 minutes. The water

penetrates the nuts, taking the vitamin C with it and detoxifies

them. Pour off the water and dry the nuts in the oven at low heat.

(Don't burn them or you will make benzopyrenes.)

Rice and pastas can be demolded partly by cooking and

partly by adding vitamin C before or after cooking. There is no

need to add so much it affects the flavor. Brown rice is especially

moldy.

Vinegars can simply have vitamin C added and placed in the

refrigerator.

Honey can be warmed and treated the same way ( tsp. per

pint).

Bread cannot be salvaged. Switch to bakery breads or

homemade. Use it up in a few days, left in its paper bag. Or slice

and place in a plastic bag in the freezer.

Since all foods have both their own and others' molds, there

must be thousands of molds. Very many have been studied besides

aflatoxin producers.
