Soybean (Glycine max) oil bodies and their associated phytochemicals
Fisk, Ian D. and Gray, David A. (2011) Soybean (Glycine max) oil bodies and their associated phytochemicals. Journal of Food Science, 76 (9). C1349-C1354. ISSN 0022-1147
Abstract: Soybean oil bodies were isolated from 3 cultivars (Ustie, K98, and Elena) and the occurrence of 2 classes of phytochemicals (tocopherol isoforms and isoflavones) and strength of their association with isolated oil bodies was evaluated. Tocopherol is shown to be closely associated with soybean oil bodies; δ-tocopherol demonstrated a significantly greater association with oil bodies over other tocopherol isoforms. Isoflavones do not show a significant physical association with oil bodies, although there is some indication of a passive association of the more hydrophobic aglycones during oil body isolation.
