Description
Grape pomace extract (GPE) is a rich and relatively low-cost source of phenolic compounds. However, little is known about the main GPE metabolites in mammals, which could help explain the observed health-promoting effects. This study investigated the presence of parent compounds from flavanol, flavonol and stilbene families and their metabolites in rat plasma and tissues after an acute intake of GPE in doses of 300 and 600 mg kg/body weight. The measurement of free compounds and their metabolites was performed by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS/MS). Results showed the presence of epicatechin, epicatechin methyl-glucuronide, epicatechin methyl-sulphate, catechin, catechin-glucuronide, quercetin methyl-glucuronide, resveratrol-3-glucuronide, resveratrol-4-glucuronide and resveratrol-3-sulphate in plasma, which was dose dependent. The most abundant measured compound in plasma was epicatechin-glucuronide. The presence of glucuronidated and methyl-glucuronidated forms of catechin were observed in the liver at both doses, while epicatechin-glucuronide and methyl-glucuronide were detected only upon intake of 600 mg GPE/kg body weight. At this dose epicatechin-glucuronide and methyl-glucuronide were also detected in muscle, and catechin methyl-glucuronide in adipose tissue. Results show the main GPE metabolites present in rat tissues after oral consumption, contributing to better understand the health benefits of GPE and its potential utilization as a functional ingredient.
