Inhibition of Pancreatin-Induced Digestion of Cooked Rice Starch by Adzuki (Vigana angularis) Bean Flavonoids and the Possibility of a Decrease in the Inhibitory Effects in the Stomach.

Flavonoids of adzuki bean bind to starch when the beans are cooked with rice. The purpose of this study is to show that adzuki flavonoids can suppress pancreatin-induced digestion of cooked rice starch. The diethyl ether extract of water boiled with adzuki bean inhibited starch digestion, and quercetin and a cyanidin-catechin conjugate (vignacyanidin) but… CONTINUE READING
