Variations of phenolics, antioxidant activity, and mineral contents in peel and pulp of five apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) cultivars from Pakistan, namely Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Kashmiri Amri, Kala Kulu and Sky Spur were appraised. The mean extract yield of antioxidant components obtained with 80:20 methanol-water (v/v), was found to be 22.1(More)
Peach (Prunus persica L.), being a potential source of bioactive compounds, has been demonstrated to have medicinal benefits. In this study variation of minerals and antioxidant characteristics (total phenolic contents, total flavonoid contents, reducing power, inhibition of peroxidation using linoleic acid system and DPPH free radical scavenging activity)(More)
The aim of present study was to appraise the antioxidant activity and phenolic contents in peel and pulp parts from two locally harvested verities of pear. The extraction yield of antioxidant components obtained with 80% methanol (80:20 methanol-water v/v) was found to be 14.30-17.50% for peel and 11.50-13.00 g/100 g for pulp on dry weight basis. The total(More)
