Phytoestrogens may play a role in hormone-related diseases such as cancer, but epidemiological and clinical data are conflicting in part due to inadequate databases used in intake estimation. [...] Key Method Foods (N = 121) available in Ontario, Canada were prepared as commonly consumed and analyzed for isoflavones (genistein, daidzein, glycitein, formononetin), lignans (secoisolariciresinol, matairesinol, pinoresinol, lariciresinol), and coumestan (coumestrol) using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry…Expand

Phytoestrogen Content of Cereals and Cereal-Based Foods Consumed in the UK
TLDR
This is the first study of phytoestrogens in a comprehensive selection of 101 cereals and cereal-based foods consumed in the UK using a sensitive LCMS technique with 13 C-labelled internal standards to allow a more accurate estimation of exposure to dietary phy toestrogens. Expand
Phytoestrogen content of beverages, nuts, seeds, and oils.
TLDR
This study analyzed a comprehensive selection of tea, coffee, alcoholic beverages, nuts, seeds, and oils for their phytoestrogen content using a newly developed sensitive method based on LC-MS incorporating (13)C 3-labeled standards. Expand
Intakes and sources of isoflavones, lignans, enterolignans, coumestrol and soya-containing foods in the Norfolk arm of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC-Norfolk), from 7 d food diaries, using a newly updated database
TLDR
The ability to estimate phyto-oestrogen intake in Western populations more accurately will aid investigations into their suggested effects on health. Expand
Phytoestrogen content of fruits and vegetables commonly consumed in the UK based on LC–MS and 13C-labelled standards
Abstract Phytoestrogens are a group of non-steroidal secondary plant metabolites with structural and functional similarity to 17β-oestradiol. Urinary and plasma phytoestrogens have been used asExpand
Evaluation of a modified food frequency questionnaire to measure lignans in Australian men and women
TLDR
The validity and reliability of a phytoestrogen food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) tool, updated and refined to align with food groups and dietary patterns in the current Australian Dietary Guidelines, was evaluated and level of agreement between methods was assessed with cross-classification analysis and Bland Altman plots. Expand
Soy and soy products, isoflavones, equol, and health
TLDR
This chapter reviews soy consumption, isoflavone metabolism, and briefly summarizes the results of recent clinical trials on, and meta-analyses of, the effects of is oflavone consumption on human health. Expand
Lignan Content in Cereals, Buckwheat and Derived Foods
TLDR
The aim of this work is to contribute to the updating of food lignan databases by providing the profile and the amount of lignans in cereals, buckwheat and several cereal based foods commonly consumed in human diets. Expand
Dietary Phytoestrogens, Including Isoflavones, Lignans, and Coumestrol, in Nonvitamin, Nonmineral Supplements Commonly Consumed by Women in Canada
TLDR
The daily intake of isoflavones and lignans from some supplements may greatly exceed those from several servings of soy or vegetables, and should be taken into consideration in clinical or epidemiological studies for more accurate estimation of phytoestrogen intakes. Expand
Comparison of phytoestrogens dietary intake from vegetables and fruit in selected population in Slovakia
TLDR
The comprehensive database of phytoestrogen content determined simultaneously in vegetables and fruits foods has been developed and the important source of phYtoestrogens in Slovak men and women is garlic. Expand
Intake of Phytoestrogen Foods and Supplements Among Women Recently Diagnosed With Breast Cancer in Ontario, Canada
Phytoestrogens are found in foods such as soy (isoflavones) and flaxseed (lignans), and certain botanical supplements. Their role in estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer recurrence andExpand

Daidzein and genistein content of fruits and nuts.
TLDR
Assessment of the daidzein and genistein content of fruits and nuts commonly eaten in Europe found thatCurrants and raisins were the richest sources of the isoflavones, containing 2,250 microg and 1,840 microg of the two is oflavones combined per kilogram of wet weight of food. Expand
Development of a database for assessing dietary phytoestrogen intake.
