Patulin is one of the most evasively considered yet extensively studied mycotoxins in apple juice. This survey on the presence of the mycotoxin-patulin, was conducted from 2013-2014 on commercial apple products which were purchased from the supermarkets and retail shops in Mysore. In this study, a total of 42 samples of apple products were analysed for patulin content, including apple juices, apple-based baby foods, apple-based jam, and mixed fruit juices. 38 samples had patulin below detectable limits. Total 4 samples were higher than 50µg/L that had patulin concentrations ranging between 85.32-877µg/l respectively. The results of this study indicate apple juices, apple-based baby foods and mixed fruit juice had shown less detectable patulin contamination. The low incidence of patulin in Mysore city commercial apple products indicate that the quality control of the industry highly standards.
