  • BEST COUNTRY QUALITY Organic whole spelled spaghetti 500g;

Ergot alkaloids can lead to health problems. ”Buyers of the product can get a replacement free of charge at the point of sale.

Fungal residues in organic pasta: Consumption of the toxins can have these effects

According to the Food Chemistry Institute, ergot alkaloids are classified as very harmful to the human body.

They are naturally formed by certain fungi and are mainly found in so-called ergot.

Spelled is one of the types of grain that can be affected by such pollution.

Health impairments can occur after consumption.

Consumers should pay close attention to acute symptoms such as nausea, abdominal pain, muscle contractions, headaches or cardiovascular problems.

In the worst case, disturbances of the central nervous system can even occur.

As the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment writes, women can also experience uterine bleeding and miscarriages after consuming small amounts.

Larger amounts of ergot alkaloids can also cause circulatory disorders, hallucinations, cramps, as well as sensory disturbances and paralysis.

The organic retailer Alnatura also recently removed its whole-grain spelled spaghetti from its range throughout Germany as a precaution.

Traces of ergot alkaloids were also found there.
