The discovery, isolation, purification, and molecular structure characterization of six fagopyritols found in common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) seeds and milling fractions are described. The proposed roles of fagopyritols in seed maturation, seed desiccation tolerance, agronomic seed performance, and human health are outlined. The similarities in molecular structure of fagopyritols to a putative insulin mediator related to non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus and polycystic… CONTINUE READING
