Formatted abstract
The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to compare the urinary excretion of phytoestrogens in Australians of Chinese and Anglo-Celtic origins. Urine samples from individuals already participating in two cross- cultural studies on food habits and health status, were used in order to measure excretion of the two isoflavonoid phytoestrogens genistein and daidzein. The mean (± SEM) 24 h excretion of genistein and daidzein, was 614 ± 202 nmol and 688 ± 218 nmol in the Chinese population and 107 ± 31 nmol and 164 ± 63 nmol in the Anglo-Celtic population (p<0.001) respectively. Differences were also observed in food consumption where cereal and legume consumptions were significantly higher in the Chinese population (p<0.0001). The urinary excretion of phytoestrogen in the Melbourne Chinese and Anglo- Celtic is consistent with excretion rates of other populations.
