Abstract

In 2011–2014 the occurrence of ochratoxin A in beers from Czech retail network was studied. The beers included draught beers, lagers, special non-alcoholic beers and beer mixtures. Totally, 132 samples were analyzed. Ochratoxin A was detected in 81 % of the samples. Its concentration moved from 1.0–194.6 ng.l–1. Average ochratoxin A content in all samples in connection with the year of the occurrence was 14.2–39.9 ng.l–1. Ochratoxin A content was analyzed using the method of liquid chromatography with the fluorescent detection (UPLC/FLR).
