BACKGROUND Urinary excretion of isoflavones and their metabolites after the consumption of soybean meal (SBM) and fermented soybean meal (FSBM) biscuits was investigated in humans in a randomized double-blinded crossover clinical trial. RESULTS Aglycones were the most abundant metabolites in urine in both treatments. After FSBM consumption, total aglycones and metabolites urinary excretion was 54% higher when compared to SBM biscuits. All metabolites were more rapidly excreted after FSBM… Expand

Production of Bovine Equol-Enriched Milk: A Review
Simple Summary Milk and dairy products contain many substances beneficial to human health; moreover, the contents of some of these substances can be enhanced. This is also the case of isoflavonesExpand
A systematic review to identify biomarkers of intake for fermented food products
While many of the candidate FIBs identified were found to be non-specific, greater specificity may be observed when considering a combination of compounds identified for individual fermented foods, food groups, and from fermentation processes. Expand
Biocompatible natural deep eutectic solvent-based extraction and cellulolytic enzyme-mediated transformation of Pueraria mirifica isoflavones: a sustainable approach for increasing health-bioactive constituents
The presence of specific gut microflora limits the biotransformation of Pueraria mirifica isoflavone (PMI) glycosides into absorbable aglycones, thus limiting their health benefits. CellulolyticExpand
Isoflavone-enriched soybean leaves attenuate ovariectomy-induced osteoporosis in rats by anti-inflammatory activity.
IESLs may attenuate postmenopausal osteoporosis by suppressing osteoclastogenesis with anti-inflammatory activity, and be a potential source of functional food ingredients for the prevention of osteoporeosis. Expand

Isoflavones are thought to have an important role in the prevention of hormone-related diseases. This study was undertaken to identify the profile of urinary isoflavone metabolites collected withinExpand
Higher bioavailability of isoflavones after a single ingestion of aglycone-rich fermented soybeans compared with glucoside-rich non-fermented soybeans in Japanese postmenopausal women.
The results of this study demonstrated that the isoflavones of aglycone-rich Fsoy were absorbed faster and in greater amounts than those of glucoside-rich Soy in postmenopausal Japanese women. Expand
Bioavailability of isoflavones after ingestion of soy beverages in healthy adults.
It is demonstrated that the is oflavone aglycones of soymilk were absorbed faster and in greater amounts than their glucosides in healthy adults and that the metabolism of isoflavones might be affected by the type ofSoymilk consumed. Expand

Since the higher percentage of equol producers in populations consuming soy-rich diets is correlated with a lower incidence of hormone-dependent diseases, considerable efforts have been made to detect the specific colonic bacteria involved in the metabolism of daidzein to the more estrogenic compound, equol, which should facilitate the investigation of the metabolic activities related to this compound.

Effect of simultaneous consumption of soymilk and coffee on the urinary excretion of isoflavones, chlorogenic acids and metabolites in healthy adults
Abstract The effect of the simultaneous ingestion of soymilk and coffee on the urinary excretion of isoflavones (ISO) and chlorogenic acids (CGA) was investigated for the first time in humans. In aExpand

Several studies of soy supplementation and bone density suggest that soy products may be more effective in maintaining bone density in equol-producing individuals and the extent to which isoflavone metabolism is key to the efficacy of soy foods remains to be established. Expand
Intake of a fermented soymilk beverage containing moderate levels of isoflavone aglycones enhances bioavailability of isoflavones in healthy premenopausal Japanese women: a double-blind, placebo-controlled, single-dose, crossover trial
The results indicate that the bioavailability of isoflavones, especially genistein, is enhanced after the intake of FSM containing 32.5% is oflavone aglycones compared with intake of SM containing no isofavone agleycones and that the enhancement is observed in healthy premenopausal Japanese women whose isof lavone absorption capacity is low after SM intake.

Bioavailability of isoflavones from soy products in equol producers and non-producers in Japanese women
The results of this study suggest that bioavailability of isoflavones are different between equol producers and non-producers, because the 24 h urinary excretions of equol in theequol producers were significantly lower than those in the equol non- Producers. Expand
Prevalence of the Equol-Producer Phenotype and Its Relationship with Dietary Isoflavone and Serum Lipids in Healthy Chinese Adults
Urinary equol excretion was detected in about 25% of participants under their usual dietary conditions, and their potential to produce equol was increased after the challenge, suggesting that urinary isoflavone levels may serve as a useful biomarker for is oflavone intake in populations. Expand

The isoflavone metabolism and disposition were affected by the duration of soy ingestion and by sex, and the excretion half-life values of genistein were longer in women than in men after the first soy ingestion. Expand
