Pomegranate peels of Ganesh variety were subjected to extraction using different solvents viz. water, methanol and ethanol either alone or in combination with water. The extraction yield, antioxidant activity (DPPH and ABTS inhibition) and total phenolic contents were evaluated. Highest yield was obtained from 50 % ethanol: 50 % water (16.3 ± 1.99 %). The(More)
Germination can enhance the nutritional and nutraceutical value of whole grain rice. Rough long grain rice was germinated for 7 days. Samples were collected from day 1 to 7 and dried to 12% moisture content. Sample collected at 0 day was included as control (non-germinated rice). The germination process caused a decrease in lipid content from 4.4% to 3.7%.(More)
