Research has shown that whole grain consumption helps lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, ischemic stroke, type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and gastrointestinal cancers (36,37). In addition to dietary fiber, whole grains contain many health-promoting components such as vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, which include phenolic compounds. Phenolic compounds have antioxidant properties and can protect against degenerative diseases (i.e., heart disease and cancer) in which reactive… Expand

TLDR
The consumption of whole grains is considered to have significantly health benefits in prevention from chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer because of the contribution of phenolic compounds existed. Expand
Total phenolic content and antioxidant activity of tritordeum wheat and barley
Whole grains are a source of numerous antioxidant compounds such as phenolic compounds, anthocyanins, phenolic acids, proanthocyanidins, lignans and others which are able to scavenge free radicals.Expand
Phenolic Compounds of Cereals and Their Antioxidant Capacity.
Phenolic compounds play an important role in health benefits because of their highly antioxidant capacity. In this review, total phenolic contents (TPCs), phenolic acid profile and antioxidantExpand
Biological role and health benefits of antioxidant compounds in cereals
TLDR
It is now established that whole grain cereals contain a large number of bound polyphenols, and research in the field of determining their antioxidant activity has not been sufficiently carried out, so a review of current literature is offered. Expand
Bioactive phytochemicals in barley.
TLDR
This paper reviews available information regarding barley phytochemicals and their potential to combat common nutrition-related diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. Expand
Analysis and Antioxidant Capacity of Anthocyanin Pigments. Part I: General Considerations Concerning Polyphenols and Flavonoids
Many epidemiological studies have shown the benefits of a diet rich in fruit and vegetables to human health and for the prevention of various diseases associated with oxidative stress, such as cancerExpand
Medicinal and Health Benefits of Brown Rice
TLDR
The chapter focuses on global interest in brown rice research on health beneficial nutraceuticals, bioactivity, and health effects. Expand
Functional Properties of Polyphenols in Grains and Effects of Physicochemical Processing on Polyphenols
Phenolic compounds are important products of secondary metabolism in plants. They cannot be synthesized in the human body and are mainly taken from food. Cereals, especially whole grains, areExpand

TLDR
The diversity and multiple mechanisms of flavonoid action, together with the numerous methods of initiation, detection and measurement of oxidative processes in vitro and in vivo offer plausible explanations for existing discrepancies in structure-activity relationships. Expand
Flavonoids in Food and Their Health Benefits
TLDR
The current advances in flavonoids in food is reviewed, with emphasis on health aspects on the basis of the published literature, which may provide some guidance for researchers in further investigations and for industries in developing practical health agents. Expand
Antioxidant properties of phenolic compounds
TLDR
It is now possible to establish the antioxidant activities of plant-derived flavonoids in the aqueous and lipophilic phases, and to assess the extent to which the total antioxidant potentials of wine and tea can be accounted for by the activities of individual polyphenols. Expand
