Alkylresorcinols (AR) are phenolic lipids present in high amounts in the bran fraction of wheat and rye. AR are of scientific interest as bioactive compounds, as markers for the presence of wholegrain or bran fractions of wheat and rye in food products, and as possible biomarkers of intake for wholegrain wheat and rye. This review discusses their extraction from cereal grains, food and biological fluids, and the various chromatographic methods used in their analysis.
