Antioxidant activity of methanolic extracts from some grains consumed in Korea
The objectives of this study were to determine antioxidant activity of the methanolic extracts from some grains and to investigate relationships between antioxidant activities and antioxidantExpand
Antioxidants in milling fractions of black rice cultivars.
Coloured rice, particularly black rice, has been shown to possess bioactive properties, and rice bran contains high levels of several antioxidant compounds. The aim of this study was to quantify theExpand
Tocopherol and tocotrienol contents of raw and processed fruits and vegetables in the United States diet
Tocopherol and tocotrienol contents of raw fruits and vegetables and processed products were determined by saponification and normal phase liquid chromatography. All samples were either locallyExpand
Antioxidant and antiproliferative properties of a tocotrienol-rich fraction from grape seeds.
The antioxidant and antiproliferative activities of a tocotrienol-rich fraction (TRF) obtained from grape seeds were evaluated. TRF, a mixture of γ-tocopherol and α- and γ-tocotrienol, was preparedExpand
Effects of Different Cooking Methods on the Antioxidant Properties of Red Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.)
Dry-heat cooking methods such as stir-frying and roasting may be preferred to retain the nutrient compositions and antioxidant properties of red pepper. Expand
Optimization of an Extraction Procedure for the Quantification of Vitamin E in Tomato and Broccoli using Response Surface Methodology
Abstract Response surface methodology (RSM) was applied to optimize the extraction procedure for the determination of vitamin E in tomato and broccoli samples. The effects of varying the amount ofExpand
Assessment of phenolics-enriched extract and fractions of olive leaves and their antioxidant activities.
Results indicate that olive leaf contains significant amounts of oleuropein and phenolics, important factors for antioxidant capacity, which can be substantially modified by different extraction methods. Expand
Chemical and functional components in different parts of rough rice (Oryza sativa L.) before and after germination
Investigation of the changes in chemical and functional components in different parts of rough rice seed before and after germination found linoleic acid increased whereas oleic and palmitic acid decreased in brown rice. Expand
Biological activities of Maillard reaction products (MRPs) in a sugar–amino acid model system
Abstract The various biological activities of Maillard reaction products (MRPs) from sugar (fructose and glucose) and 20 amino acid model systems were evaluated. Colour development, in vitroExpand
Effect of grape seed oil supplementation on plasma lipid profiles in rats
The purpose of the study was to investigate the comparative effects of feeding of grape seed oil (GSO), soybean oil (SO), and lard on plasma lipid profile in rats. Lard fed diets increased bodyExpand
