ArticlesAbsorption and Metabolism of Rutin and Quercetin in the Rabbit*
Review articleOpen access

AbstractThe metabolic fate of orally administered rutin or its aglycone, quercetin, has been investigated in rabbits. Evidence for the absorption and metabolism of these compounds is based upon the urinary excretion of degradation products. One of these products has been isolated and identified as 3,4‐dihydroxyphenylacetic acid. The amount isolated accounts for at least 2 5 per cent of the quercetin administered.
