    ß-Zearalenol is a mycotoxin produced by several species of Fusarium. ß-Zearalenol exhibits pronounced estrogenic activity, like other zearalenones. Contamination of grains by Fusarium species, notably maize, gives rise to high levels of zearalenol and is regarded as an important food quality issue for both human and animal health.

    ß-Zearalenol is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO and has limited water solubility.
