In order to evaluate the anti-hyperglycemic effect of natural compounds via the inhibition of alpha-glucosidase (AGH), the potential inhibitory effect of anthocyanins, caffeic acid analogs, and caffeoylquinic acid analogs have been reviewed. A new AGH assay system to mimic the membrane-bound AGH at the small intestine was proposed and evaluated.
