Their presence has been found in some edible mushrooms, fruits, vegetables, seeds of cultivated plants, black tea, caviar, and meat of hyperpigmented hens. Sun-dried fruits contain a lot of melanin, unlike those sulphurized . Melanins have a number of potentially health-promoting properties, e.g. antioxidant and hepatoprotective activity, the ability to lower blood sugar levels, and chelate metal ions.
