Cyanogenic glycosides are found in many types of organisms (plants, insects, fungi and some micro-organisms) (Nahrstedt, 1985). They consist of an a-hydroxynitrile stabilised by a glycodidic linkage to a sugar moiety (Conn, 1979) and are classified by their precursor amine acids and their sugar moiety, which is usually glucose.
