Lignans have gained nutritional interest due to their promising role in the prevention of lifestyle diseases. However, epidemiological studies are in need of more evidence to link the intake of lignans to this promising role. In this context, it is necessary to study large population groups to obtain sufficient statistical power. Therefore, there is a demand for fast, sensitive, and accurate methods for quantitation with high throughput of samples. This paper presents a validated LC-MS/MS method for the quantitation of eight plant lignans (matairesinol, hydroxymatairesinol, secoisolariciresinol, lariciresinol, isolariciresinol, syringaresinol, medioresinol, and pinoresinol) and two enterolignans (enterodiol and enterolactone) in both human and pig plasma and urine. The method showed high selectivity and sensitivity allowing quantitation of lignans in the range of 0.024–100 ng/mL and with a run time of only 4.8 min per sample. The method was successfully applied to quantitate lignans in biofluids from ongoing studies with humans and pigs.
