Background: The beneficial effects of cocoa polyphenols depend on the amount consumed, their bioavailability and the biological activities of the formed conjugates. The food matrix is one the factors than can affect their bioavailability, but previous studies have concluded rather contradictory results about the effect of milk on the bioavailability of polyphenols. Aim: The objective was to evaluate the possible interaction of milk on the absorption of (–)-epicatechin ((–)-Ec) from cocoa powder… Expand
The effects of milk as a food matrix for polyphenols on the excretion profile of cocoa ( − )-epicatechin metabolites in healthy human subjects
TLDR
The results show that milk does not significantly affect the total amount of metabolites excreted in urine, however, differences in metabolite excretion profiles were observed; there were changes in the glucuronide and sulfate excretion rates, and the sulfation position between the period of excretion and the matrix.

Flavanol Bioavailability in Two Cocoa Products with Different Phenolic Content. A Comparative Study in Humans
TLDR
Cocoa flavanols are moderately bioavailable and extensively metabolized, mainly by the colonic microbiota, as assessed in a crossover, randomized, blind study. Expand
The effect of milk proteins on the bioaccessibility of green tea flavan-3-ols
Abstract While the impact of interactions between flavan-3-ol and protein on food quality has been reported, the ability of these interactions to modify flavan-3-ol bioavailability remains unclear.Expand
Human bioavailability of flavanols and phenolic acids from cocoa-nut creams enriched with free or microencapsulated cocoa polyphenols
TLDR
The data demonstrated that (epi)catechin was absorbed from CC; cocoa polyphenols' consumption increased circulating phenolic acids; and the encapsulated ingredient increased flavanol delivering into the gut. Expand
Effect of food matrix on the content and bioavailability of flavonoids
Abstract Background:Dietary flavonoids have drawn great interest owing to their potential positive effects on health, which considerably rely on their bioaccessibility, transport and furtherExpand
Influence of chocolate matrix composition on cocoa flavan-3-ol bioaccessibility in vitro and bioavailability in humans.
TLDR
The data suggest that bioavailability of cocoa flavan-3-ols is likely similar from typical commercial cocoa based foods and beverages, but that the physical form and sucrose content may influence T(MAX) and C(MAX). Expand
Effect of milk and brewing method on black tea catechin bioaccessibility.
TLDR
Whether milk reduces the bioaccessibility of tea catechins, which would compromise tea beneficial effects ascribed to polyphenols, is investigated and it is very unlikely that consumption of tea with or without milk will result in differences in catechin plasma concentration. Expand
Influence of sugar type on the bioavailability of cocoa flavanols
TLDR
The present data indicate that full assessment of intervention treatments is vital in future intervention trials with flavanols and that carbohydrate content is an important determinant for the optimal delivery of flavanol to the circulation. Expand
Cardioprotective effects of cocoa: clinical evidence from randomized clinical intervention trials in humans.
TLDR
Scientific evidence supports a cause and effect relationship between consumption of cocoa flavonoids and the maintenance of normal endothelium-dependent vasodilation, which contributes to normal blood flow, but larger randomized trials are required to definitively establish the impact of cocoa and cocoa products consumption on hard cardiovascular outcomes. Expand
Addition of milk to tea infusions: Helpful or harmful? Evidence from in vitro and in vivo studies on antioxidant properties
TLDR
Interactions between tea polyphenols and milk proteins, especially between catechins and caseins, could account for a decrease in antioxidant activity, although other mechanisms are also possible, given the similar effects between soy and bovine milk. Expand

Food effects on the absorption and pharmacokinetics of cocoa flavanols.
TLDR
Data suggests that the uptake of flavanols can be increased significantly by concurrent carbohydrate consumption, and the ability of treatment meals to affect AUC values was positively correlated with treatment carbohydrate content. Expand
Bioavailability of quercetin in pigs is influenced by the dietary fat content.
TLDR
The elimination of quercetin was significantly delayed after its application with fat-enriched diets, indicating that the fat content of the diet influences oral bioavailability of Quercet in addition to the chemical form of the flavonol. Expand

TLDR
Gallic acid and isoflavones are the most well-absorbed polyphenols, followed by catechins, flavanones, and quercetin glucosides, but with different kinetics, and the least well- absorption polyphenol are the proanthocyanidins, the galloylated tea catech ins, andThe anthocyanins. Expand

TLDR

Bioavailability of (-)-epicatechin upon intake of chocolate and cocoa in human volunteers
TLDR
EC in chocolate and cocoa was partly absorbed and was found to be present as a component of various conjugates in plasma, and these were rapidly excreted in urine. Expand
Catechin is present as metabolites in human plasma after consumption of red wine.
TLDR
At every time point, catechin was present almost exclusively as metabolites, and these levels were independent of ethanol, Therefore, if flavonoids are protective nutrients, the active forms are likely to be metabolites, which are far more abundant in plasma than the forms that exist in foods.
