    Nicole M Lyons
    Department of Food Science, Food Technology and Nutrition, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland
    J Dermatol Sci 30:73-84. 2002
    ..SOD activity was unchanged following UVA exposure in the intestinal cell line. This work suggests a role for the algal extract as a potentially beneficial antioxidant...

    E Ryan
    Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences, University College, Cork, Ireland
    Plant Foods Hum Nutr 62:85-91. 2007
    ..In conclusion, seeds, grains, and legumes are a rich natural source of phytosterols. Additionally, they contain noticeable amounts of squalene and tocopherols, and in general, their fatty acid profile is favorable...

    S A Aherne
    Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences, University College Cork, Cork, Republic of Ireland
    Plant Foods Hum Nutr 64:250-6. 2009
    ..To conclude, our findings suggest that geographical location, rather than the type of tomato, seems to have a more pronounced effect on carotenoid bioaccessibility from tomatoes...

    L Ryan
    Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences, University College Cork, Cork, Republic of Ireland
    Plant Foods Hum Nutr 63:127-33. 2008
    ..Depending on the cooking methods used, carotenoid retention as well as micellarisation varied for each carotenoid among the different vegetables and different carotenoids present in each particular food...
