The Function Of Cinnamaldehyde And Its Application In Food

May. 30, 2020

Cinnamaldehyde is also known as cinnamaldehyde, and its chemical name is triphenyl acrolein. Under normal pressure, its melting point is -8 ° C and boiling point is 253 ° C. It exists in the form of a liquid. Cinnamic Aldehyde has two isomers, cis and trans. Natural cinnamaldehyde has trans structure. Cinnamaldehyde has a rich and lasting fragrance of cinnamon oil, has the characteristics of bacteriostasis and mildew prevention, dilation of blood vessels and lowering blood pressure. It is widely used in medicine, food industry and other fields.

Cinnamic Aldehyde Supplier has shown that cinnamaldehyde has the effect of lowering blood sugar and blood fat, and can be used to treat type II diabetes. Ingestion of cinnamaldehyde can improve the utilization of glucose and esters in the body to achieve the purpose of lowering blood sugar and blood fat. Studies have shown that after taking cinnamaldehyde, patients with type 2 diabetes have significantly reduced fasting blood glucose, triglycerides, and low-density lipoprotein content. Cinnamaldehyde can be used in the treatment of anti-cell fibrosis. Studies have shown that cinnamaldehyde can inhibit the proliferation and hypertrophy of renal interstitial fibroblasts and the synthesis and secretion of interstitial collagen caused by high glucose. Studies in rats induced by high glucose found that cinnamaldehyde can reduce the proliferation of rat cardiac fibroblasts and inhibit the synthesis and secretion of interstitial collagen. Cai Leiqin and other studies have shown that cinnamaldehyde can specifically activate the nuclear factor E-2 related factor pathway and promote wound healing in diabetic mice. Some studies show that cinnamaldehyde can resist gastrointestinal ulcers by inhibiting pepsin's erosion of the gastric mucosa and increasing the gastric mucosal blood flow rate; it can gently stimulate the stomach, promote the secretion of saliva and gastric juice, enhance digestive function, promote appetite, and relieve gastrointestinal tract Smooth muscle spasm, relieve intestinal spasm pain.



Cinnamaldehyde has antibacterial effect. Cinnamaldehyde has a broad-spectrum antibacterial effect. Cinnamaldehyde antifungal experiments were conducted on 22 species and 31 conditionally pathogenic fungi. All have better suppression effect.

Cinnamaldehyde can increase the level of active oxygen in some bacteria, causing oxidative damage to it and causing death. The action of cinnamaldehyde on Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa found that after treatment with the cinnamaldehyde solution, the growth of E. coli was inhibited, the content of hydrogen peroxide and malondialdehyde in the bacteria increased significantly, and there were bacteria on the surface of Pseudomonas aeruginosa cells Membrane production, although no active oxygen accumulation was detected in its body, its growth and metabolism were also affected.
