Becky Huber and Robert and Ads I From Deanna's Desk By Deanna Sweat, Extension Agent Flavonoids find favor in nutrition A food compound with an unusual name is last becoming a shining star in human nutrition. Scientistsare findingincreasingevi- dence that a diet rich in flavonoids, common in many plant foods, helps decrease the risks of heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, blood cholesterol and other chronic diseases. Perhaps even better news: most people already are getting an abun- dance of llavonoids in their diet and don't even know it. "If you're eating plant foods for vitamins, minerals, fiber, carbohy- drates and water, yot,'re also getting lots of flavonoids," said Barbara Lohse Knous, a nutritioni st with Kansas State University Research and Extension. Flav~noids are known as a sub- group of polyphenols, or a group of about 6,000 lbod compounds com- monly found in fruits and vegetables. The list of foods or other products containing flavonoids is hmg and in- cludes grapefruits, oranges, apples,col'- tee, green tea, onions, red pepper, cel- ery, soy, wheat and even wine and chocolate, to name a few. But the number of human fix~ds containing flavonoids and other polyphenols is vast. Research in this area is very new as scientist and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture are just now trying to develop a data base to cata-" Iogue and understand the benefits of these nutrients. The nice thing you can say is eat those fruits and vegetables; eat those plant foods. The whole idea of a plant based diet is extremely important. Not only do they have nutrients like vita- mins and minerals, but they have been h)und to have all of these other phytonutrients that we now know help US survive. The term phytonutrients refers to compounds originally developed for plants. Polyphenols, as nutrients, of- ten exist in plant foods to help survive in the environment An orange doesn't make Vitamin C so that humans who eat oranges have Vitamin C--an or- ange makes Vitamin C so that it can protect itself against the environment, For example, polyphenols protect plants foods by killing harmful bacte- ria and parasites; or acting as antioxi- dants by stopping the formation of "free radicals." which are known to cause cancer. When humans ingest these foods, the polyphenols provide the same protective benefits. Knowing about these phytonutrients is a bonus. It's like we're getting something else that we didn't plan on getting, and !o and behold, they're very helpful for us. Kaye Barrett.
