Abstract

When administered to rats, mogroside V (a pentaglucose-conjugated mogroside), the main sweetening component of Siraitia grosvenori, was mostly degraded by digestive enzymes and intestinal microflora, and was excreted in the feces as mogrol (aglycone) and its mono- and diglucosides. However, trace amounts of mogrol and its monoglucoside were found in the portal blood as sulfates and/or glucuronide conjugates.
