phlobaphenics / phlobaphenes?
Explanation:
Multiple searches failed to turn up anything on "phlobatene" or "phlobatenics," but quite a bit on "phlobaphene":

"The incorporation of methoxy bearing phenols into the phlobaphene structure seems to be abundant ..."
ecsoc2.hcc.ru/DP_TOP2/dp083/dp083.htm

"KOLA NUT ... phlobaphene;"
home.neo.lrun.com/a7th/p79kola.htm

"Phlobaphene, Trichosanic acid, ... free long-chain fatty acids ..."
www.herbal-factory.mcmail.com/natv.htm

King's American Dispensatory: Geranium:
"... with much decomposed tannin (phlobaphene) ..."
www.ibiblio.org/herbmed/eclectic/kings/geranium.html

King's American Dispensatory: Nymphaea.-Water Lily.
"... tannic principles, viz. ... nymphaeo-phlobaphene..."
www.ibiblio.org/herbmed/eclectic/kings/nymphaea.html

"Plant phlobaphene" and "root phlobaphene":
chili.rt66.com/hrbmoore/Constituents/Ptychopetalum_olacoides.txt
chili.rt66.com/hrbmoore/Constituents/Krameria_triandra.txt

"The identified constituents of Muira Puama are muirapuamine, phlobaphene, alpha-resinic acids..."
www.annivitalshop.com/produkter/gb2444.asp

"... in the pathway leading to the production of a red flavonoid pigment called phlobaphene."
grain.jouy.inra.fr/ggpages/mgcnl/mnl/69/12chopra.html

Might there be a spelling error in the Portuguese, with the intended word being "flobafênicos" ("phlobaphenics" or "phlobaphenes")?
