Attention eating: this popular super food can cause hydrogen cyanide poisoning

Superfood is healthy, has a delicious taste and helps you lose weight. So you can not eat enough, right? This is not always true: you have to be careful with flaxseed, a popular ingredient in breakfast and smoothie. Which is too small seeds, can get a cyanide poisoning of hydrogen.

Flax seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and micronutrients, and are quite delicious at breakfast. In fact, a reason to take as much as possible? On the contrary. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) even warns of small seeds. This is due to cyanogenic glycosides. These chemical compounds are present in flax seeds and can release cyanide, also called cyanide, as indicated by EFSA in a risk assessment.

Excessive consumption can lead to cyanide poisoning of hydrogen. Therefore, we should not eat more than 30 grams of ground flaxseed per day, and children under 13 should eat less than 30 grams.

We can not get enough of these carbs – and this without any regrets!

The lethal dose of cyanide is 0.5 to 3.5 mg / kg, and people with cyanide poisoning exhibit the following symptoms:

  • dizziness

  • cramps

  • difficulty breathing

  • unconsciousness

Still not afraid of flax seed

Whole flax seeds, on the other hand, can be eaten safely, reports EFSA. These pass through the human digestive system for the most part unchanged and are then excreted again. Flaxseed oil is also harmless, according to an Australian study.

Despite these messages, you should not refrain from flaxseed at breakfast. The seeds contain a lot of fiber. Eating a lot increases the feeling of satiety and positively affects carbohydrate metabolism, as the German Society of Nutrition (DGE) says. Dietary fiber also reduces the risks of obesity, hypertension and heart disease.

At the next purchase, let the shredded flax seed sit on the shelf and grasp it in full. You can sprinkle it safely into muesli or mix it with your smoothie.
