What is Eriocitrin?
Eriocitrin (eriodictyol 7-O-β-rutinoside), a flavonoid glycoside, is the key flavonoid in lemon fruit (citrus limon). Eriocitrin is very elusive and is the most soluble of all flavonoids.
Further, a peel and a squeezed residue are secondary products provided in squeezing a fruit juice. The extraction of an active ingredient by reusing these portions is industrially quite useful, and this is extremely profitable from the aspect of utilizing a waste. Still further, in the industry of the fruit juice, besides the peel and the like, waste liquors such as feeding water and washing water used in that treatment are provided in large amounts, and these can be utilized as eriocitrin solutions.
Health Benefits of Eriocitrin
Eriocitrin can lower total cholesterol via VLDL and LDL reduction.
Eriocitrin and its metabolites by intestinal bacteria (eriodictyol, 3,4-dihydroxyhydrocinnamic acid, and phloroglucinol) exhibited stronger antioxidative activity and had approximately the same activity as (-)-epigallocatechin gallate. Eriocitrin and its metabolites are powerful antioxidants using an in vitro oxidation model for heart disease.
