Thiocyanate Content in Foods and Effect of Domestic Processing
AbstractGoitrogens are substances present in food capable of altering the thyroid function by interfering with the assimilation of iodine or its utilization in the synthesis of thyroid hormones, there by affecting regulatory mechanisms which may maintain thyroid homeostasis. Goitrogens present in the food are in the form of thiocyanate, isothiocyanate L-5-vinyl-2 thiooxozolidone (goitrin), C-glycosylflavones, thionamidelikegoitrogens, disulphides, phenols, phthalates, biphenyls, lithium and excess iodine.
