Penicillium is known as the blue-green mold on bread, fruits, and nuts. It is also used for the production of green and blue mold cheese. Penicillium grows best in spring and winter, but the mold has no seasonal variation. It is a well-known group of brushed-shaped microorganisms belonging to the fungimycin family, and has no known sexual state. Penicillium is heterotrophic.

A mold that may result in allergy symptoms in sensitized individuals. Penicillium is the blue-green mold found on stale bread, fruits and nuts, and used for production of green and blue mold cheese.

Penicillium has long been recognised as one of the molds most often producing positive skin test reactions in allergic individuals. Inhalation of Penicillium spores in quantities comparable with those encountered by natural exposure can induce both immediate and late asthma in sensitive persons. Sensitivity to Penicillium bears no relationship to sensitivity to the antibiotic Penicillin. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
