This study was designed to compare antioxidant concentration in Kudzu versus common food sources such as shiitake mushrooms (Lentinula edodes), spinach (Spinacia oleracea), and nori seaweed (Porphyra yezoensis).
For example, the main subunits of NADPH oxidase in mammalian phagocytes, vascular plants, diatoms, and the red macroalgae Porphyra yezoensis and Chondrus crispus are structurally related (Keller et al., 1998; Torres and Dangl, 2005; Herve et al., 2006), which confirms that this protein is evolutionary ancient.

Porphyra yezoensis. Edible red algae (Porphyra yezoensis) are commonly consumed in South East Asia and they contain few biologically functional components, dietary fibers, taurine, polyunsaturated fatty acids, carotenoids, and porphyra-334 amino acids as well as essential minerals, vitamins, and proteins.
