55p Medicinal food – Greater burnet

One of the earliest examples of South Georgia’s biota being eaten by humans was the use of Aceana magellanica, commonly known as greater burnet, that was consumed because of its high vitamin C content. A sample of burnet, collected by Captain Cook’s botanists, Johann Reinhold and Georg Forster, still rests in the Natural History Museum in London. It is thought that burnet was used medicinally by James Weddell when he passed by the island on route to Antarctica to cure scurvy, a disease endemic to ship life before the discovery of vitamin C in the early 20th Century.
