Abstract: 

Wheat flour is an important milling product which be used highly in bread, meal food and candy. As the Nool flour is used very much for making cake and candy; so this study carried out in order to determine Deoxynivalenol in Nool flour. One kilogram samples (n=8) were taken from different places of three flour factories selected randomly in Tehran province. The samples taken from a same batch were mixed to each other and then divided into 100 and subsequently into 10 gram of sub samples. The clean up procedure was carried out by immunoaffinity columns (DON Test Column) and the samples were analyzed by HPLC instrument which was equipped with UV detector and C18 column. Mobile phase was Acetonitrile – Water in the ratio 10-90 (V/ V).
The highest and least amount of DON which was measured in 0.25 gram flour was 57.57 and 8.71 microgram respectively. As the average amount obtained from this study is much higher than the standard level (1ppm) which has been set for flour in some countries and also the highly used of this kind of flour in making cake and confectionary industry , therefore it seems there is a risk for humans who consumed this kind of flour in diet .
