Chemical Information
FooDB NameLinamarin
DescriptionLinamarin, also known as phaseolunatin or manihotoxin, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as cyanogenic glycosides. These are glycosides in which the aglycone moiety contains a cyanide group. Linamarin is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Linamarin exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Linamarin is a bitter tasting compound. Linamarin has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as peachs, pineappple sages, evening primroses, globe artichokes, and bog bilberries. This could make linamarin a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Linamarin is a potentially toxic compound.
