  • "Although it is difficult to deduce the biological significance of the data presented here from in vitro studies, one may speculate that consumption of blueberry fruit polyphenolics and particularly malvidin glycosides may be beneficial in alleviating the damaging consequences of oxidative stress in muscle tissue," wrote Dr Hurst and his co-workers.

  • Further analysis of the extract indicated that the active compounds could be malvidin galactoside and malvidin glucoside, said the researchers.

  • "High degradation rates of malvidin arabinoside and delphinidin arabinoside suggest that they may be highly susceptible to destruction and less suitable for food colourant use among those tested," they concluded.
