Oligomeric proanthocyanidin

Several in vitro studies have shown that black-seed-coated soybeans possess three to four times more antioxidative activity than yellow-seed-coated soybeans (Furuta et al., 2003; Xu and Chang, 2008). Although no study has pinpointed the biological constituents responsible for the high antioxidative activity of black soybean compared to yellow soybean, oli-gomeric proanthocyanidin - a bioflavonoid that has been strongly linked to reductions in cancer risk and CVD - is found in high concentrations in black soybean.
