Changes in the contents of mevinolins (natural statins, ), coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10, ), and tocopherols ( dry weight) in Monascus-fermented soybean were determined using HPLC. Significant increases (p<0.05) in mevinolins and CoQ10 were obtained in Monascus-fermented soybean after 20 days of fermentation compared with unfermented soybean (0 days), whereas no significant change (p>0.05), or a slight decrease, in tocopherols was observed. The results indicate that Monascus-fermentation has great potential for enriching mevinolin and CoQ10 in soybeans.
