IS is it Gyromitrin or MMH that is boiled out of Gyromitra esculenta?
I have done some research and read form some google books and they say that it is MMH Monomethylhydrazine that is boiled out of Gyromita species but I thought that it is a product of metabolic hydrolysis and so therefore would not be found in the mushroom in that form(MMH) it would be found in the mushroom as Gyromitrin which boils at a higher temp.
What am I to think?
Can any one explain?
