To explore the MOE (margin of exposure) application in risk assessment of peanut aflatoxins in consumers, data of aflatoxins contamination in post-harvest peanut of China and the data of Chinese peanut consumption were collected. Based on aflatoxins toxicological data, MOE values of different regions from population of different age-groups were evaluated. Results indicated no significant difference between urban and rural regions, but children were at higher risk than other populations. Compared to low-dose extrapolation, MOE was recommended due to its effective performance in posterior analysis.
