Groundnut cake (GNC) samples were highly contaminated (29/29) followed by rice bran (2/2), wheatbran (9/11), maize (5/7) and cotton seed cake (2/3). The anatoxin B1 content in GNC 858.3 ppb was alarmingly high (range 20–4200 ppb)) One sample each of mustard cake and barley was also analyzed and found negative.
