Abstract
Plant polyphenols classified as proanthocyanidins or condensed tannins have demonstrated potential to improve health. However, interest in these compounds is limited because individual compounds are found in low proportions in complex mixtures obtained from plant extracts. The work in this project is directed to finding a way to make rare or novel proanthocyanidin compounds in potentially unlimited amounts by starting with common and renewable agricultural waste products such as tree bark or nut shells.
