“Fresh” is not necessarily good and safe

Daylily, also known as Golden Needle, Forget Worry, Hemerocallis, Liliaceae Hemerocallis plants, mainly from Hunan, Shanxi, Gansu, Shanxi and other places. Daylily is very beautiful, and it is crisp, refreshing and nutritious. It is loved by many people. Stir frying or making soup is a rare delicious food. In addition, people believe that daylily has the effect of milking, so it is also one of the dishes that must be served for many breast-feeding mothers.
 
Usually, we eat dried daylily. But there are many places, especially the origin of daylily, some people like fresh, like to eat fresh daylily. However, fresh is not necessarily good and safe. This is because there is a toxin in the daylily, which may cause food poisoning after eating.
 
Alkaloid hiding in daylily

Both flowers and roots of daylily contain a poisonous alkaloid, which is usually thought to be colchicine.
 
Colchicine, a substance that many people are familiar , can inhibit cell mitosis process, so that chromosomes can stay in the metaphase of division,which is very common in Cytology and Breeding, it also has the effect of anti-inflammatory, is a common drug for the treatment of gout and other diseases.
 
A recent study indicates that alkaloids in daylily are not colchicine. The author collected more than 150 samples of edible daylily and detected colchicine, but found another alkaloid similar to colchicine.
 
The author believes that the alkaloids in daylily are colchicine, this misjudgement may be caused by the undeveloped detection conditions.
 
However, whether the alkaloid in daylily is colchicine or not, the fact that it can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal irritation symptoms is beyond all doubt, because poisoning after eating fresh daylily is not rare.
  
Eating fresh daylily in a safe way 

If you want to enjoy the taste of daylily and avoid poisoning, you need to know the correct way to eat daylily.
 
1.It is better to remove pistils before eating fresh daylily, because pistils contain most toxin.
 
2. Fresh daylily should be cleaned before eating, and then boiled, and then put in cold water immersion for a few hours, and fully cooked and boiled, so as to remove the toxins and avoid food poisoning.
 
3. Eating dried daylily is more insurance. Dried daylily is not as tasty as the fresh, but the process of drying can destroy its toxins, so it is more comfortable to eat.
