According to A. Hirota and colleagues of the University Shizuoka, "We isolated from soybean miso 8-hydroxyglycitein and 6-hydroxydaidzein as DPPH-radical scavengers, and elucidated their chemical structures by mass spectrometric, and H-1- and C-13-NMR spectrosopic analyses."
"These compounds showed DPPH-radical scavenging activity as high as that of alpha-tocopherol, 8-hydroxygenistein, and 8-hydroxydaidzein," they reported.
The researchers concluded, "This is the first report of the isolation of 8-hydroxyglycitein from a natural source."
