Poached Egg Plant (Meadow Foam)

 Feed Sparingly
  • Common Name: Poached Egg Plant (Meadow Foam)
  • Latin Name: Limnanthes douglasii
  • Family Name: Limnanthaceae
Although the Poached Egg Plant does contain some glycosides (which can contribute to the formation of kidney and bladder stones) and glucosinolates (which are goitrogenic glycosides that can inhibit iodine absorption),  feeding small quantities of this plant, as part of a varied diet, will do no harm.
