Hepatotoxic pyrrolizidine alkaloids in pollen and drying-related implications for commercial processing of bee pollen. PAs have been reported to be hepatotoxic, mutagenic, and carcinogenic; they are a significant group of natural toxins affecting livestock, wildlife, and humans. More than 500 differ-ent pyrrolizidine alkaloids and corre-sponding N-oxides are known, some of them being extremely toxic.  |  To date, approximately 600 different PAs are known. The present paper summarizes the occurrence of alkaloids in the food chain, their mode of action and possible adverse effects including a safety assessment. Pyrrolizidine alkaloids are more than 600 individual compounds that are hazardous for animals and humans if ingested.

Safety evaluation of certain food additives and contaminants: supplement 2: pyrrolizidine alkaloids, prepared by the eightieth meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (‎‎JECFA) Pyrrolizidine alkaloids are a large group of natural toxins produced by plants that have been associated with livestock diseases and human poisoning after contamination of staple foods. Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PA) are widely distributed in plants throughout the world, frequently in species relevant for human consumption. This site needs JavaScript to work properly. Apart from the toxicity that these molecules can cause in humans and livestock, PA are also known for their wide range of pharmacological properties, which can be exploited in drug discovery programs. The decomposition of toxic pyrrolizidine alkaloids in ragwort (Senecio jacobaea) on storage in waste bags has been evaluated by a new time-of-flight mass spectrometric detection method.

Some plants consumed by humans contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids naturally but other foods can become contaminated with pyrrolizidine alkaloids when weeds producing these toxins are accidentally harvested along with the crop. Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) are widely distributed plant toxins with species dependent hepatotoxic, carcinogenic, genotoxic and pneumotoxic risks. 2020 Mar 1;12(3):155. doi: 10.3390/toxins12030155. Contamination of grain with 1,2-dehydropyrrolizidine ester alkaloids (dehydroPAs) and their N-oxides is responsible for large incidents of acute and subacute food poisoning, with high morbidity and mortality, in Africa and in central and south Asia. Pyrrolizidine alkaloidosis is known by many other names such as "Pictou Disease" in Canada and "Winton Disease" in New Zealand. 2019 Dec 11;11(12):726. doi: 10.3390/toxins11120726. There is now increasing recognition that some staple and widely consumed foods are sometimes contaminated by dehydroPAs and their N-oxides at levels that, while insufficient to cause acute poisoning, greatly exceed maximum tolerable daily intakes and/or maximum levels determined by a number of independent risk assessment authorities. NLM A first discussion paper on Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids (PAs) in Food and Feed and Consequences for Human Health (CX/CF 11/5/14)1 was prepared by an electronic working group, led by the Netherlands, for discussion at the 5th CCCF. Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids Analysis in food and feed offered by Eurofins Pyrrolizidine alkaloids are secondary metabolic products, formed to protect against herbivores by a multitude of plant species worldwide.

Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) are a large group of natural toxins produced by plants, several of which are known to be highly hepatotoxic and have been shown to be carcinogenic in rats.
