Almond Skin Polyphenols May Help Modulate Plasma Biomarkers of Oxidative Stress

Almond Skin Polyphenols May Help Modulate Plasma Biomarkers of Oxidative Stress


The study “Polyphenols in Almond Skins after Blanching Modulate Plasma Biomarkers of Oxidative Stress in Healthy Humans” was recently published in the journal Antioxidants.


The objective of this study was to examine the effect of almond skin polyphenols (ASP) on plasma oxidative stress and redox status in a human clinical trial with seven healthy older adults consuming ASP in skim milk. Results observed that ASP consumption may modulate some plasma biomarkers of oxidative stress. 
 
Polyphenolic compounds in blanched almond skins are capable of up-regulating antioxidant defense mechanisms and enhancing the resistance of LDL “bad” cholesterol to oxidation. Thus, almond skins resulted from the production of blanched almonds may have the potential for use in the development of some ingredients and food products.
 
This study was supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Almond Board of California.
