Soy isoflavones have been associated with several beneficial effects of soy in human diets. However, most soy is consumed by livestock in the Western countries. It is possible that isoflavones could be transferred and/or accumulated into animal products, which could become additional sources of dietary isoflavones for humans. Our objectives were to determine whether dietary isoflavone genistein could be transferred and/or accumulated into the eggs of Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) and how… CONTINUE READING
