Flavonoid intake and risk of chronic diseases.
The risk of some chronic diseases may be lower at higher dietary flavonoid intakes, and a trend toward a reduction in risk of type 2 diabetes was associated with higher quercetin intakes. Expand
Contents of vitamins, mineral elements, and some phenolic compounds in cultivated mushrooms.
Cultivated mushrooms were found to be good sources of vitamin B(2), niacin, and folates, with contents varying in the ranges 1.8--5.1, 31--65, and 0.30--0.64 mg/100 g dry weight (dw), respectively. Expand
Determination of free and total phenolic acids in plant-derived foods by HPLC with diode-array detection.
A high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method with diode-array detection (DAD) was used to identify and quantify free and total phenolic acids in plant foods, and the methods developed were effective for the determination of phenolic acid in plant Foods. Expand
Lead and cadmium contents in pork, beef and chicken, and in pig and cow liver in Finland during 1991.
The contents of lead and cadmium were low in all samples studied, approximately the same level or lower than those found in earlier Finnish studies. Expand
Contents of essential and toxic mineral elements in Swedish market-basket diets in 1987.
The market-basket contents of Ca, Mg, Fe and Zn calculated from values in the Swedish food composition tables were close to the analysed values, indicating that the Swedishfood tables provide relevant information for the estimation of the dietary supply of these elements. Expand
Determination of flavonoids in plant material by HPLC with diode-array and electro-array detections.
A high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method with in-line connected diode-array (DAD) and electro-array (EC) detection to identify and quantify 17 flavonoids in plant-derived foods isExpand
Lead, cadmium and mercury contents in average Spanish market basket diets from Galicia, Valencia, Andalucía and Madrid.
The Madrid population having the highest average intake of this metal and exceeding the Provisional Tolerable Weekly Intake, because of the vegetables and cereals consumed. Expand
Electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometric determination of selenium in foods and diets.
It was shown that selenium can be determined in samples containing greater than or equal to 1 microgram Se/g dry wt without organic extraction, and the Se/Fe or Se/P interference limits proved to be low enough not to affect seenium determinations in practically all foods or diets. Expand
Determination of anthocyanidins in berries and red wine by high-performance liquid chromatography.
The HPLC method developed proved thus to be effective for reliable determination of anthocyanidins from freeze-dried berry samples and red wine. Expand
Coenzymes Q9and Q10: Contents in Foods and Dietary Intake
Coenzyme Q9and Q10contents in 35 food items were determined and coenzyme Q intake of Finns was estimated. The analytical method employed direct solvent extraction or saponification before extractionExpand
