Generally, cassava peel contains higher linamarin content than the pulp and removal of the peels therefore reduces the cyanogenic glucoside level (Tewe and Kasali, 1996).
However, it contains a cyanogenic glucoside, linamarin, that is hydrolyzed in two steps: the linamarin is first hydrolyzed to acetone cyanohydrin and glucose (catalyzed by the enzyme linamarase), and then the acetone cyanohydrin is hydrolyzed to acetone and hydrogen cyanide (HCN).
NRC (2001) also mentions that the sulfur requirement of dairy cattle consuming cyanogenic plants (such as cassava or sorghum) may be increased because of the need for sulfur in the detoxification of cyanogenic glucosides.
A possible effect of cyanogenic glucoside in sorghum on animal requirements for sulfur.
