GUTIERREZ-GRIJALVA, Erick Paul et al. Bioavailability of dietary phenolic compounds: review. Rev Esp Nutr Hum Diet [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.2, pp.140-147. ISSN 2174-5145.

Phenolic compounds are ubiquitous in plant-based foods. High dietary intake of fruits, vegetables and cereals is related to a decreased rate in chronic diseases. Phenolic compounds are thought to be responsible, at least in part, for those health effects. Nonetheless, phenolic compounds bioaccessibility and biotransformation is often not considered in these studies; thus, a precise mechanism of action of phenolic compounds is not known. In this review we aim to present a comprehensive knowledge of the metabolic processes through which phenolic compounds go after intake.

Keywords : Phenols; Biotransformation; Metabolism.
