Glucosinolates are a class of ca. 120 secondary plant metabolites generally found in Brassicaceae. These compounds have a similar structure characterised by a common part containing a beta thioglucose coupled with a sulfonated oxim group and by a variable organic side chain constituted with alkyl, alcenyl, hydroxy-alcenyl, aryl, indolyl, sulfinyl, sulfonyl or thio residues. Present in high or low level (00 varieties) in rapeseed/canola seeds and in rapeseed/canola meals, these molecules are easily broken down during animal digestion, leading to compounds with detrimental and antinutritional characteristics. They are known to interfere with the thyroid and to damage vital organs . [less ▲]
