Ochratoxin B is the non-chlorinated analogue of the much more extensively studied ochratoxin A. It is co-produced by the same species of Aspergillus and Penicillium that are associated with food spoilage. Ochratoxin B has received little focused investigation and its mode of action and potential hazards have been inferred from ochratoxin A.
