poisoning," Analyst, vol.
paranense alkaloid fraction (0.01-0.73 mg/ear), solanine
(0.001-0.37 mg/ear), or dexamethasone (0.1 mg/ear; used as a positive control) was dissolved in 20 [micro]L of acetone and applied topically before the croton oil treatment.
Muscat: Tons of potatoes have been destroyed in Oman after a ministerial circular warned about contamination with solanine
, a naturally occurring toxic material in potatoes.
Our bodies can easily break down and excrete the natural amount of solanine
in an average-sized serving of potatoes.
But a person could take only so many Rococo statues, so after a while Lord Solanine
picked himself off to the Far East, where he worked on the salvation of funerary urns from antiquity.
Indeed, some folks may be sensitive to solanine
, and may complain of arthritic joint pain and stiffness when they eat too many of these otherwise nourishing vegetables.
POTATOES: Can be kept for a month after the bestbefore date but root growth and green colouration indicates the presence of a potentially toxic chemical called solanine
. So make sure you chop those bits off.
The presence of choline, cuscohygrine, solacaproine, solanine
, solaso-dine in different parts of the plant has been reported (Guptal995; Alonso 2004).
They contain a chemical called solanine
, which disrupts the work of enzymes, thus increasing inflammation.
Several species of Solanum produce steroidal glycoalkaloids that have close structural and configurational relationships with steroidal sapogenins (Dinan et al., 2001).The alkaloids of the genus Solanum include solanine
, solasonine, and solamargine (Eltayeb et al., 1997; Cherkaoui et al., 2001; Weissenberg, 2001).
Chaconine and solanine
, glycoalkaloids normally present in potatoes, also were detected.
Chlorophyll is not toxic but is often a marker for high levels of another substance, solanine
, which can be toxic.
