Anthocyanins, the class of flavonoid responsible for giving a red hue to many berries, have been associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. However, numerous intervention studies feeding anthocyanin-rich foods report limited (<1%) bioavailability of the parent anthocyanins in vivo. Due to the instability of anthocyanins at neutral pH, it is postulated that degradation products and metabolites of anthocyanins may be responsible for the perceived bioactive effects. The aims… CONTINUE READING
