Spinosyns in food



Spinosyns in food



Ernahrungs Umschau 48(10): 402-406, 390



The insecticide spinosad commercially available since 1997 is poorly soluble in water, non-volatile and non-persistent. It is environmetally degraded by photolysis, oxidation and bacteria. Its half-life in sunlight is <1 day in soil and water and about 2 days on plants. Obviously, traces only are absorbed by plants. Mammalians fed spinosad excrete 60-80% of the dose unchanged or in the form of metabolites after 48 h in faeces and urine.
