Woad (Dyer's Woad)

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Woad (Dyer's Woad)
  • Latin Name: Isatis tinctoria
  • Family Name: Brassicaceae/Cruciferae
Although non-toxic, this plant from the Brassica family contains three different goitrogenic compounds and a glucoside which breaks down into sugar.  Eating small amounts of Woad will probably do no harm, but we think it is best to avoid feeding this plant to your tortoise.
