Abstract

PESTAB. Major areas of research and findings over the past 30 yr in the field of food science and technology are reviewed. Specific mention is made of metabolic studies of two rodenticides, norbormide and alpha-naphthyl thiourea (ANTU). Norbormide causes a 100% increase in blood glucose levels of rats given 1-2 mg/100 g body wt. ANTU causes uremia and hyperglycemia. Studies have demonstrated that tricalcium phosphate is ingested by the insect larvae, causing glycogen and fat depletion. Insect larvae of Corcyra cephalonica have been used to develop a sensitive biological method for the assay of the toxic components present in gaur bean meal.
