About tropane alkaloids

Tropan alkaloids are a group of natural plant substances in the form of the alkaloids, which are derived from tropan. According to the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety, these alkaloids occur in certain weeds from the nightshade family, such as common thorn apple (Datura stramonium L.), black henbane (Hyoscyamus niger L.) and deadly cherry (Atropa belladonna L.). If parts of these plants get into the crop during harvesting, the food can become contaminated.

Sorghum, millet, buckwheat and corn are affected more often

EU-wide studies have repeatedly found increased levels of the tropane alkaloids atropine and scopolamine in certain batches of cereals and cereal products. Sorghum, millet, buckwheat and corn are particularly affected. According to the Bavarian State Office, consumption can lead to symptoms such as drowsiness, headache and nausea. The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment warns that young children and infants are most at risk and that health impairments are possible. (vb)
