Cholesterol is a molecule with an unsaturated bond; therefore, like polyunsaturated fatty acids, it is prone to oxidation. Cholesterol oxidation products (COPs) are found in many common foods and have been shown to be atherogenic, cytotoxic, mutagenic and possibly carcinogenic. Therefore, efforts to prevent or to avoid COPs formation during manufacture and/or processing of foods are of high priority. The effect of natural antioxidants on COPs formation has not been extensively studied. We… 
Use of Natural Antioxidants in the Inhibition of Cholesterol Oxidation: A Review.
The use of natural antioxidants can be an alternative to synthetics to prevent the formation of COPs and extend the shelf life of foods susceptible to oxidative deterioration.
Natural antioxidants in functional foods: from food safety to health benefits
Oxygen is essential for metabolism but it may be highly damaging for both organisms and foods unless properly controlled. Among uncontrolled detrimental processes lipid oxidation (or oxidative
Kinetics of Cholesterol Oxidation in Model Systems and Foods: Current Status
This analysis shows that it is necessary to broaden and deepen the kinetic study of cholesterol oxidative phenomenon from a mechanistic perspective with a more specific application of kinetic principles to help to monitor COPs during processing of the food and thus prevent their accumulation in the final products.
Polyphenol Composition, Antioxidant, Antimicrobial and Quorum Quenching Activity of the “Carciofo di Montoro” ( Cynara cardunculus var. scolymus ) Global Artichoke of the Campania Region, Southern Italy
The variety Carciofo di Montoro could represent a good source of health-promoting polyphenols, encouraging a nutraceutical use of such ecotype, for several phyto-pharmaceutical applications.
Modulatory Effects of Rosemary Leaves Aqueous Extract on Doxorubicin‐Induced Histological Lesions, Apoptosis and Oxidative Stress in Mice
Rosemary extract was proved to significantly attenuate the doxorubicin-related toxic effects via more than one mechanism such as the powerful inhibition of lipid per-oxidation, the stimulation of the synthesis of cellular antioxidants, the decrease of the inflammatory response and the reduction of the apoptotic index.
Boldo, Its Secondary Metabolites and their Derivatives
This review attempts to bring these publications together in a comprehensive way with the purpose of stimulating and orienting further research into the useful properties of this Chilean endemic tree.
Protective Effect of Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis) Leaves Extract on Carbon Tetrachloride - Induced Nephrotoxicity in Albino Rats
It is concluded that rosemary extract had a protective effect against kidney injury induced by CCl 4 and this effect may be attributed to its antioxidant activity.
This study is a trial to produce healthy biscuits supplemented with nutritional sources belonging to several plant families, rich in antioxidants. The investigated sources used for supplementation
The Effects of Buckwheat Leaf and Flower Extracts on Antioxidant Status in Mouse Organs
The administration of buckwheat extracts to mice significantly decreased superoxide dismutase activity and reduced the amount of glutathione (GSH) and malondialdehyde (MDA) in the mouse brain, while catalase (CAT) activity significantly increased.


Effect of synthetic antioxidants on cholesterol stability during the thermal-induced oxidation of a polyunsaturated vegetable oil
As a molecule with an unsaturated bond, cholesterol is prone to oxidation. Cholesterol oxidation products (COP) are found in many common foods and have been shown to be atherogenic, cytotoxic,
Synthetic and natural antioxidants: food quality protectors
Oxidation of food lipid components, known as oxidative rancidity is one of the major deteriorative and quality-affecting reactions. Oxidative rancidity is initiated by oxygen free-radicals or by the
Flavonoids as stabilizers of fish oil: An alternative to synthetic antioxidants
The antioxidant activities against fish oil oxidation of six commercially available flavonoids and of five flavonoids purified from two Chilean native plants were compared to those ofdl-α-tocopherol
Natural antioxidants for food use
Antioxidant inhibition of cholesterol oxidation in a spray-dried food system during accelerated storage
Spray-dried egg yolk was used to evaluate antioxidant inhibition of cholesterol oxidation during accelerated (Cu +2 and heat) storage. Liquid yolk was treated with equimolar amounts of BHA (0.01%,
Cholesterol Oxides in Foods of Animal Origin
The earliest discovery of an oxidation product of cholesterol from a natural source was reported in 1940. Additional discoveries of cholesterol oxidation products (COPS) in edible food products
Antioxidant effects of d-tocopherols at different concentrations in oils during microwave heating
The effects of d-tocopherols at different concentrations (50 to 1000 ppm) on the oxidative stability of ethyl linoleate and tocopherol-stripped oils were investigated under microwave heating
Inhibitory effect of boldine on fish oil oxidation
The present study supports the potential use of boldine as a novel natural antioxidant for fish oil by showing a good antioxidative effect, comparable to that of quercetin and even better than that of dl-α tocopherol and the synthetic antioxidants.
