The present invention aims to provide an external dermal composition for anti-ageing, which prevents or improves apparent skin problems such as age-related or senescent wrinkles, fine wrinkles, saggings, spots, etc., as well as maintaining or enhancing the skin barrier functions. The object is solved by providing an external dermal agent for anti-ageing, which contains as an effective ingredient(s) one or more members selected from the group consisting of adenosine N1-oxide 5-phosphate, analogues thereof, and their salts.


The present invention has objects to provide a glucan useful as water-soluble dietary fiber, its preparation and uses. The present invention solves the above obj ects by providing a branched -glucan, which is constructed by glucose molecules and characterized by methylation analysis as follows:(1) Ratio of 2,3,6-trimethyl-1,4,5-triacetyl-glucitol to 2,3,4-trimethyl-1,5,6-triacetyl-glucitol is in the range of 1:0.6 to 1:4;(2) Total content of 2,3,6-trimethyl-1,4,5-triacetyl-glucitol and 2,3,4-trimethyl-1,5,6-triacetyl-glucitol is 60% or higher in the partially methylated glucitol acetates;(3) Content of 2,4,6-trimethyl-1,3,5-triacetyl-glucitol is 0.5% or higher but less than 10% in the partially methylated glucitol acetates; and(4) Content of 2,4-dimethyl-1,3,5,6-tetraacetyl-glucitol is 0.5% or higher in the partially methylated glucitol acetates; a novel -glucosyltransferase which forms the branched -glucan, processes for producing them, and their uses.


The present invention aims to provide a novel glycosyl hesperetin, which is significantly reduced in miscellaneous tastes characteristic of conventional products containing glycosyl hesperetin, and a method for producing the same and uses thereof; and the objects are solved by providing a glycosyl hesperetin which comprises glycosyl hesperetin in an amount of 90% or more by mass but less than 100% by mass, on a dry solid basis, but it does not substantially contain furfural, and a method for producing the same and uses thereof.

The present invention has an object to provide an external dermal composition for anti-ageing, which prevents or improves apparent skin problems such as wrinkles, fine wrinkles, blemishes, and saggings caused by increasing age or ageing; and maintains or improves the barrier function and the hyaluronic acid production in the skin. The object is solved by providing an external dermal composition for anti-ageing, which contains an aqueous medium as a base material and one or more ingredients selected from L-ascorbic acid, derivatives thereof, and their salts as an effective ingredient(s).


The invention provides a process for enabling the production of a particulate composition containing anhydrous crystalline ascorbic acid 2-glucoside that does not significantly cake even when the production yield of ascorbic acid 2-glucoside does not reach 35% by weight. The process for producing a particulate composition containing anhydrous crystalline ascorbic acid 2-glucoside, which comprises allowing a CGTase to act on a solution containing either liquefied starch or dextrin and L-ascorbic acid and then allowing a glucoamylase to act on the resulting solution to obtain a solution with an ascorbic acid 2-glucoside production yield of at least 27%, purifying the obtained solution to increase the ascorbic acid 2-glucoside content to a level of over 86% by weight, precipitating anhydrous crystalline ascorbic acid 2-glucoside by a controlled cooling method or pseudo-controlled cooling method, collecting the precipitated anhydrous crystalline ascorbic acid 2-glucoside, and ageing and drying the collected anhydrous crystalline ascorbic acid 2-glucoside.


The present invention addresses the problem of providing an agent for lifestyle-related diseases, an oral composition, and a high-fat food product that can be conveniently, safely, and continuously consumed onadailybasis. This problem is solved by an agent for lifestyle-related diseases that contains a specific branched -glucan having the characteristics described in the present invention, an oral composition comprising the agent, and a high-fat food product comprising the same.


The present invention has an object to provide an effective and safe therapeutic agent for inflammatory diseases such as sepsis, hepatitis, and inflammatory bowel disease, and solves the above object by providing a therapeutic agent for inflammatory diseases containing adenosine N1-oxide or a derivative thereof as an effective ingredient.


The present invention aims to provide a particulate composition containing anhydrous crystalline 2-O- -D-glucosyl-L-ascorbic acid having a significantly, hardly solidifiable property compared to conventional ones in a grade for use in quasi-drugs; a process for producing the same; and uses thereof. The present invention solves the above object by providing a particulate composition containing anhydrous crystalline 2-O- -D-glucosyl-L-ascorbic in an amount of over 98.0% by weight but less than 99.9% by weight, on a dry solid basis; or a degree of crystallinity of 90% or higher for anhydrous crystalline 2-O- -D-glucosyl-L-ascorbic acid, when calculated based on a profile of powder X-ray diffraction analysis of the particulate composition, and a dynamic vapor sorption level of 0.01% by weight or lower, when kept at 25C under a relative humidity of 35% by weight for 12 hours after removal water in the particulate composition under nitrogen gas stream; and by providing a process for producing the same and uses thereof.
