1994). The free radicals in I. germanica rhizomes were extracted into aqueous alkali and found to be flavonoids including quercetin, irisolone, selenone and derivatives of irigenin. The main flavonoids had more reduced and/or more alkylated structures than those from I. germanica grown under normal aerobic conditions. Semiquinone radical anions could readily be generated from quercetin, and similar flavonoids with 1,2-dihydroxy-, 1,4-dihydroxy- or trihydroxy-substitution patterns, by interaction with superoxide.

In Africa, edible orchid tubers are collected from the wild and processed into a meatless sausage locally called chinaka, chikande and kikande, which is consumed as relish or just as a snack (Kasulo et al. 2009). The tubers are also used in soups which are reported to be served in some international tourist hotels (Hamisy 2010). The main orchid species used for this purpose are from the genera Disa, Habenaria and Satyrium. Many species in the orchid genera Pterostylis, Diuris and Thelymitra have edible tubers.
