The use of Yucca schidigera extract in poultry feed is a good alternative to maintain metabolic and environmental ammonia levels within acceptable limits in order to keep the animals unaffected, to reduce bad odors and to improve productivity parameters, mainly feed conversion and increased production
I tried Quinoa 3 days ago for the first time. I purchased it in bulk (big bin) from my health food store. I rinsed it in a fine mesh strainer and “thought” I did it correctly. I’ve had it everyday now for 3 days (1 – 1 & 1/2 cups usually per day) and I started feeling a little gasy the first day, more the second day combined with slight nausea. This morning (day 3) I woke up with itchy hands/feet and arms – never once suspecting it might be the Quinoa allergy. I had yet another cup for lunch today and now, several hours the itching has increased to pretty much all-over my body! So crazy! That was my “ah-ha” moment, never would I have imagined this awesome food could cause allergies! So sad 🙁 I love Quinoa and introduced it for extra protein since I’m pregnant (37 weeks). I think I’ll give it a break and after baby comes give it another shot AFTER and only after I remove the outer casing. Wish me luck! 😉
Maple syrup urine disease, a disorder of branched-chain amino acid catabolism that results in abnormal accumulations of the amino acids and their metabolites, was suspected in a healthy infant born to a mother who ingested a paste prepared from fenugreek seeds early in labor. 30 Fenugreek, maple syrup, and the urine of patients with the disease share a characteristic odor originating from a common ingredient, sotolone. The seeds have been used in traditional medicine to augment milk supply in nursing women. The extent of transmission of fenugreek-derived constituents into breast milk is unknown.
