What happens to the gold liquid ? How is it made into penicillin ?
If Penicillium is a toxic mold, then how come it's used in so many cheeses? The only toxic one is Penicillium marneffei.
|Penicillium bilaiae||agricultural inoculant|
|Penicillium camemberti||Camembert and Brie|
|Penicillium candida||Brie and Camembert|
|Penicillium marneffei||1st toxic one.|
|Penicillium notatum||penicillin antibiotic|
|Penicillium roqueforti||Roquefort, Danish Blue, Gorgonzola|
- Interesting question... So does this mean bread is OK to eat when it's gone "mouldy"? Is it in fact healthier to eat it when mouldy? Anxietycello (talk) 03:47, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Is this form of mold/fungi harmful? spp is an abbreviation for species. Penicillium spp refers to the species in the genus Penicillium collectively, but not the genus itself.
Some allergy clinics will diagnose you as allergic to "Penicillum" without specifying the particular kind of Penicillium. Meanwhile there has apparently been plenty of research showing some of the culinary varieties have no statistically significant link to allergies, or at least, the form it takes in final products like bleu cheese does not. It would be good for this article to list which of the species are the most likely allergens. (184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:08, 26 June 2014 (UTC))
