Toxicological Studies

Food is an exceedingly complex mixture of nutrients and nonnutrient substance.34 Hence, before any new food item is considered safe for human consumption, it has to undergo a series of detailed test for toxicology to prove it is indeed safe. The material has to be analyzed for toxic compounds, followed by toxicology evaluations including short, medium and long-term studies.

Toxic compounds can be classified into two categories, that is, biogenic and nonbiogenic toxins. According to this classification, the first group includes all those compounds that are either synthesized by cells or made by the decomposition of metabolic products. The second group involves environmental pollutants and other substances, mostly anthropogenic, entering the algal culture from the outside and absorbed and accumulated by algal cells.35
