The Contaminants of Mushroom Culture/261
synthesize citric acid and gluconic acid from a simple sucrose enriched solution. In the past, citric
acid was extracted from lemon juice; now it is made more profitably from this fungus.
Comments: This is a dangerous genus. Since one can encounters Aspergillus flavus, A. niger, A.
fumigafus in the course of mushroom culture, precautionary steps should be undertaken to minimize exposure to these toxic contaminants.
Aspergillus candidus is a cream colored mold whose colonization of the grain results in a sharp
escalation of the spawn temperature.

See also Penicillium. For further information consult "The Genus Aspergillus" by Raper and
Fennel, a monograph in which 1 32 species were recognized. Presently, more than 200 species are
known.
