Daidzin is a natural organic compound in the class of phytochemicals known as isoflavones. Daidzin can be found in Japanese plant Kudzu (Pueraria lobata, Fabaceae) and from soybean leaves.[1]

Daidzin is the 7-O-glucoside of daidzein.

Daidzin has shown the potential for the treatment of alcohol dependency (antidipsotropic) based on animal models.[2][3]

List of plants that contain the chemical

  • Pueraria candollei[4]
  • Pueraria lobata[5]
  • Pueraria thomsonii[6]
  • Pueraria thunbergiana[7]
