What is Perilla Seed Extract?
Perilla Seed Extract inhibits the production of allergic mediators, leukotrienes (LTs). The mediators are metabolites of arachidonic acid through 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) pathway. It selectively inhibits 5-LO activity (in vitro). It also inhibits type IV allergy as well as TPA-induced inflammation (in vivo). Moreover, the serum IgE levels were suppressed by administration of perilla seed powder, and allergic rhinitis, hay fever and urticaria were significantly improved on human.
Perilla seeds contain a variety of flavonoids and plant polyphenols. Most of these substances have phenolic hydroxyl groups, which are active groups for scavenging free radicals and active oxygen.
In the food industry, some lipid products will cause serious product rancidity due to higher peroxide value, causing manufacturers to suffer huge economic losses, and at the same time harm the health of consumers. The most commonly used method to prevent oxidative rancidity is to add chemically synthesized antioxidants, such as BHA, BHT, TBHQ, etc. Although this is economical and efficient, chemically synthesized antioxidants have been proven to have cumulative carcinogenic effects. Because the perilla plant has a strong antioxidant effect, it is expected to become a highly effective, low-toxic and economical natural antioxidant.
The perilla seed extract extracted from perilla seeds is a substance beneficial to human and animal health. Therefore, it has been assessed by the Ministry of Agriculture as a new feed additive "safe, effective, and environmentally friendly". Included in the "Catalogue of Feed Additives".
