Study on Detoxification Effect of Fermentation on Cyanide Content of Cassava Tuber

The goal of this study is to look into the detoxifying capability of fermentation on cassava tuber’s poisonous (cyanide) content. Cassava is a staple food for roughly 800 million people in tropical countries. The cyanogenic glycosides in the tuber, which are mainly starch, are degraded by enzymes to form hydrocyanic acid. The fermentation procedure involves…

Allium cepa Linn Improved Rhodanese Activity and Half-life of Cyanide in the Blood

Rhodanese is an intramitochondrial liver enzyme responsible for cyanide detoxification. Allium cepa (Onion); an organosulphur-rich plant that may provide sulphur for cyanide detoxification. The effects of Allium cepa on rhodanese activity during cyanide toxicity were studied in male Wistar rats in vitro and in vivo. In vivo experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of…
