The Major Source of Antioxidants Intake From Typical Diet Among Rural Farmers in North-eastern Japan in the 1990s
- This is the first study to clarify the total antioxidant intake reflecting the foods commonly consumed in a Japanese population.
- We constructed an antioxidant database of foods representative of the typical Japanese diet using 12-day dietary records from Japanese.
- To consider the effects of peroxyl radical-scavenging activities, our database measured hydrophilic- and lipophilic antioxidant values on standardized methods.
- We found that Japanese diet included rice and seafood, is a desirable diet with high in antioxidants, especially high in lipophilic antioxidants.
