  • Phyto‐oestrogens are non‐steroidal plant‐derived compounds that possess oestrogenic activity and act as selective oestrogen receptor modulators (SERMs). Among the dietary oestrogens, the isoflavone class enjoy a wide‐spread distribution in most of the members of the Leguminosae family, including such prominent high‐content representatives as soybean. Phyto‐oestrogen research has grown rapidly in recent years owing to epidemiological studies suggesting that diets rich in soy may be associated… CONTINUE READING
