Reverse-phase H P L C method has been the widely used method of choice for analysis of phenolic compounds in artichoke, and recently several strong H P L C and L C - M S methods have been published (1,3,4). We recently described an H P L C method to analyze the phenolic compounds in artichoke leaves and head, the edible unopened flower which we consume as a vegetable (3). 2 χ 150 mm) column was selected and the column temperature was ambient. 2% phosphoric acid, solvent A ) and acetonitrile (solvent B) in the following gradient system: initial 94% A and 6% B , linear gradient to 70% A and 30% Β in 20 min, held at 30%B for 5 min.
Polyphenols are therefore the most abundant phytochemicals in our diet and because of their potent bioactivities, are of significant importance in human nutrition and health. Types of Dietary Polyphenols The considerable structural diversity of polyphenols imparts unique biological properties to each class which affects their absorption, distribution, metabolism, bioavailability and excretion in humans. The structural diversity of dietary polyphenols can be observed by the varying types and oxidation levels of their heterocycle ring, their substitution patterns of hydroxylation, the existence of steroisomers, their glycosylation by sugars and/or acylation by organic and phenolic acids, and by conjugation with themselves to form polymers etc.
