  • 10. SAPONIN: ITS OCCURENCE IN PLANT AND NUTRITIONAL IMPLICATIONS IN FARM ANIMALS

    » ABSTRACTSaponins are natural detergents found in a variety of plants. Two major commercial sources of saponins are desert plants, such as Yucca schidigera from Mexico and Quillada saponaria from Chile. Yucca saponins have a steroid nucleus, where as Quillada saponins are triterpenoid in structure. Saponins contain a lipophylic nucleus (steroid or triterpenoid) and one or more water soluble carbohy...Continue Reading »
