Maize (Zea mays) cell cultures were used for the production of zearalenone-4-β-D-glucopyranoside as standard compound. Wheat samples were extracted with acetonitrile: water, applied to a florisil column and eluted with methanol: ethyl acetate. For determination and quantification of zearalenone-4-β-D-glucopyranoside and zearalenone a LC-MS method was developed. A concentration of 10 μg/kg zearalenone-4-β-D-gluco- pyranoside and zearalenone was detectable. The recovery rates were calculated to be 69% and 89% at a concentration level of 100 μg/kg for zearalenone-4-β-D-glucopyranoside and zearalenone, respectively. 24 Bavarian wheat samples from harvest 1999 were analyzed. Zearalenone was present in 22 out of 24 field samples, the levels ranged from 11-860 μg/kg. Zearalenone-4-β-D-glucopyranoside was found in 10 out of the zearalenone positive samples (42%) at levels ranging from 17 to 104 μg/kg. The amounts of zearalenone-4-β-D-glucopyranoside were correlated to those of zearalenone (r2=0,86; b=0,10).
