BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Consumption of cyanogenic foods has been considered as one of the etiological factors in certain instances for the persistence of endemic goitre. The present study was undertaken to study the cyanogenic glucosides, glucosinolates and thiocyanate content in edible portion of certain selected plant foods of Indian origin. Further in vitro anti-thyroidal activity using raw, boiled and cooked extracts of these plants with and without excess iodide was also studied. METHODS… Expand
Goitrogenic/antithyroidal potential of moringa leaves (Moringa oleifera) and spinach (Spinacia oleracea) of Indian origin on thyroid status in male albino rats
Moringa leaves and spinach used as vegetables containing cyanogens and polyphenols having suspected antithyroidal activity; however, detailed studies in this aspect found unavailable.Expand
Goitrogen in Food: Cyanogenic and Flavonoids Containing Plant Foods in the Development of Goiter
TLDR
Observations reveal that a number of plant foods usually consumed by the people of several regions contain goitrogenic/antithyroidal substances that interfere with thyroid hormone synthesis, acting at different levels in the thyroid gland and causing goiter and associated iodine deficiency disorders.

TLDR
Results suggest that catechin present in green tea extract might behave as antithyroid agent and possibly the consumption of green tea at high dose could alter thyroid function adversely. Expand
Studies on Goitrogenic/ Antithyroidal Potentiality of Thiocyanate, Catechin and After Concomitant Exposure of Thiocyanate-Catechin
In adequate iodine intake including and a number of environmental agents can affect thyroid gland functions in man and animals. Thiocyanate and catechin that arise for the consumption of cyanogenicExpand
Effects of cassava on thyroid gland in rats
The root of cassava has been consumed as a food in many tropical countries. In pharmaceutical industry, cassava starch can be used as a binder in tablet formulation. Since cassava contains highExpand
Estimated Dietary Intake of Thiocyanate from Brassicaceae Family in Korean Diet
TLDR
Average thiocyanate intake per person was lower than doses required to produce adverse effects in published animal studies, however, further studies may be warranted to ensure safety with sufficient margins of safety. Expand
Role of bamboo-shoot in the pathogenesis of endemic goiter in manipur, north East India.
TLDR
Bamboo shoot, a goitrogenic plant food, is consumed regularly in the iodine-sufficient region of Manipur, India and is the likely cause for the persistence of endemic goiter in the Manipur region. Expand
Assessment of the Levels of Thiocyanate in Processed and Unprocessed Red and Brown Finger Millet (Eleusine Coracana) Grown in Mogotio Area, Baringo County, Kenya
TLDR
The amounts measured in the current research indicate that the thiocyanate content found in the finger millet samples were within the recommended levels but the frequency of ingestion may still result into health risks, so it is advocated that processing prior to cooking be encouraged as this reduces thiOCyanate levels. Expand
Assessment of the rates of thiocyanate in treated and untreated red and brown finger millet (Eleusine coracana) cultivated in Mogotio Area, Baringo County, Kenya
TLDR
The results showed that the thiocyanate content in finger millet samples was within the recommended rates (100 mg/kg), but the frequency of intake may still give a risk on health, and it is suggested to encourage the cooking of finger Millet before processing as this decreases thiOCyanate rates. Expand
Effect of different doses of un-fractionated green and black tea extracts on thyroid physiology
TLDR
It is concluded that goitrogenic/antithyroidal potential of un-fractionated green tea extract is much more than black tea extract because of the differences in catechin contents in the tea extracts. Expand

Antithyroid and goitrogenic effects of millet: role of C-glycosylflavones.
TLDR
In areas of iodine deficiency in which millet is a major component of the diet, its ingestion may contribute to the genesis of endemic goiter as well as certain other antithyroid agents and small doses of MMI. Expand
Preliminary Observations on the Effect of Dietary Brussels Sprouts on Thyroid Function
TLDR
In view of the reported antithyroid activity of 5-vinyloxazolidine-2-thione it is suggested that this lack of activity of cooked Brussels sprouts is due to inactivation during cooking of myrosinase, the specific glucosinolate-degrading enzyme. Expand
Problems of iodine and thiocyanate in domestic animals in goitrogenic areas of southern Poland.
TLDR
It is postulated that TSH may be partly responsible for increased SCN level in goitrous thyroids, and whether increased ingestion of SCN does really potentiate iodine deficiency and goitrogenic process in animals breeding in southern Poland. Expand

TLDR
Malnutrition and poor socioeconomic conditions, as for iodine deficiency, enhance the action of environmental goitrogens, and a coordinated multidisciplinary approach is essential to solving this public health problem. Expand
Role of goitrogens in iodine deficiency disorders & brain development.
TLDR
Investigations suggest that goitrogens play a significant role in influencing biochemical events unique to developing brain in response to treatment with a goitrogen--thiocyanate. Expand
Thiocyanate feeding with low iodine diet causes chronic iodine retention in thyroids of mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that when mouse thyroids are iodine depleted, thiocyanate increases the formation of an essentially insoluble iodinated thyroglobulin within the thyroid. Expand
Thiocyanate feeding with low iodine diet causes chronic iodine retention in thyroids of mice.
Effects of KSCN on thyroidal iodine metabolism were studied in weanling mice fed a low iodide diet (LID) labeled continuously with 125I as iodide. The addition of KSCN (0.3 and 0.6 mg/g diet)Expand
[The effect of thioglycoside-containing feed on the growth, thyroid hormone and thiocyanate status of swine and poultry].
TLDR
Feed containing rapeseed meal with high glucosinolate content induced a strong increase of thyroid weight in pigs and poultry and the goitrogenic effect of the RSM does not correlate with the increased thiocyanate serum level. Expand
Effect of varying glucosinolate and iodine intake via rapeseed meal diets on serum thyroid hormone level and total iodine in the thyroid in growing pigs.
TLDR
Investigations show that pig diets with RSM should contain at least 0.5 mg I kg-1, but 0.1 mg supplementary I per kg is sufficient in diets without or with a low content (less than 1 mmol glucosinolates and aglucones perkg-1) of antithyroid compounds. Expand
Risk factors for goiter and thyroid nodules.
TLDR
The difference in age maximum in goiter prevalence suggests that monitoring of iodine deficiency disorders should ideally include a spectrum of age groups, and pregnancy-induced goiter to be the result of exacerbation of existing iodine deficiency. Expand
