"The toxic yellow mold, Alaxotin Aspergillus Flavus is the fungus Saprophyte that can live on dead organic matter. It has not been a proven allergenic or toxic species to human beings.
the charming wikipedia contributes...
"Aflatoxins are naturally occurring mycotoxins that are produced by many species of Aspergillus, a fungus, most notably Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Aflatoxins are toxic and among the most carcinogenic substances known. After entering the body, aflatoxins are metabolized by the liver to a reactive intermediate, aflatoxin M1, an epoxide. Aflatoxin is frequently misspelled as aflotoxin and alfatoxin, which could be confused with alpha toxin."
Of course, they may just be "Flavor Crystals"
Thanks Tom! I dont like the sound of that! I know that Wesli has the same cake and I know that he did a review on it so I looked at his blogg hopping for some pictures and sure enough there are! The picture below have the same exact coloration on them that scared me. You can notice kinda some greenish yellow cloudy bloches on the areas the he flaked off. It almost lookes like someone gave the cake a dusting of chalk. Take a look. Thanks Wesli for the pictures. I guess this proves that all of these Guoyan 66 cakes have this and it isnt harmful. I guess I just didnt notice it beofre now.
