This report details a project that critically examined existing botanical, chemical and toxicological information on the current major commercial bushfoods as well as their history of use in traditional Aboriginal cultures. Information is also included on several additional species which have considerable commercial potential. Based on this assessment, chemical analyses were carried out on a range of bushfood samples provided by the industry, to determine the presence/absence and/or concentration of some of classes of compound or individual compounds with some toxic properties.
