The effect of a range of saponins, commonly present in foods or dietary supplements, on the potential difference (PD) across the mucosa of the rat small intestine in vitro has been examined. Saponins from Gypsophila, guar, alfalfa, Quillaja, clover and liquorice together with glycoalkaloids from the potato and tomato were examined. The typical response was an immediate reduction in PD, although there was considerable variation in the response to particular compounds. Amongst the factors… CONTINUE READING
