Abstract:
Cyanogenic glucoside contents in some edible nuts and seeds (Sesamum indicum, Anacardium occidentale, Garsinia Kola, Sorghum bicolor,Vigna Unguilata) were all analysed to establishe their proximate compositions. The study showed that four (4) out of the six samples studied (Cashew nut, Bitter kola, Corn seeds and Cowpea seeds) contained hydrogen cyanide in the form of cyanogenic glycoside in quantities varying from 29.16mg/100g of dried samples for corn seeds to 56.70mg/100g for bitter kola, while two (2) of the samples sesame seed and sorghum seed tested negative showing the absences of hydrogen cyanide. The toxicological implications of the results have been discussed.
