Abstract

Nitrofurans are antibacterials banned in livestock by different countries due to its relationship with the production of carcinogenic metabolites. Several studies have been conducted to find the best methodology to identify these residues. Te objectives of this review work were to show the risk of nitrofuran metabolites (furazolidone; nitrofurazone; nitrofurantoin, furaltadone and nifursol); to explain the application of liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry to determine the presence of these residues in foods of animal origin; and, finally, to report some methodologies that were recently used in different foods of animal origin.Nitrofuranos são antibacterianos proibidos na criação de animais por diferentes países devido a sua relação com a produção de metabolitos carcinogênicos. Vários trabalhos de pesquisa têm sido desenvolvidos para encontrar a melhor metodologia que possa identifcar esses resíduos. O presente trabalho de revisão teve como objetivos mostrar o risco dos metabolitos dos nitrofuranos (furazolidona, nitrofurazona, nitrofurantoina, furaltadona e nifursol); explicar a aplicação da cromatografia líquida e da espectrometria de massas para determinar a presença desses resíduos em alimentos de origem animal; e, fnalmente, relatar algumas metodologias usadas recentemente em alimentos de origem animal.
