CYANOGENIC GLYCOSIDES First draft prepared by Dr G. Speijers, National
Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection Laboratory for Toxicology
The distribution of the cyanogenic glycosides (CGs) in the plant kingdom is
relatively wide, the number of CG-containing taxa is at least 2500, and a lot of
Plant materials containing ≥200 ppm of cyanogenic glycosides are dangerous.
There are at least two forms of chronic cyanide poisoning in domestic animals: ...
chemical compounds contained in foods that release hydrogen cyanide when
chewed or digested. The act of chewing or digestion leads to hydrolysis of the ...
The cyanogenic glycosides belong to the products of secondary metabolism, to
the natural products of plants. These compounds are composed of an ...
Cyanogenic glycoside content of cassava and bamboo shoots. There are a
number of varieties of cassava, each of which has a different cyanide level.
The cyanogenic glycosides are toxic because they yield hydrogen cyanide (HCN
) when enzymically degraded. Enzymatic hydrolysis results when the.
