Abstract

Growth inhibition of Bacillus megaterium by aflatoxin B1 is employed in semi-quantitative assay of the toxin. Aqueous extracts of tea and coffee were found to interfere with this assay, which indicated that tea and coffee contain factor(s) which can reverse the aflatoxin toxicity on B. megaterium.
