Antioxidant activity and phenolic compounds in selected herbs.
The antioxidant capacities (oxygen radical absorbance capacity, ORAC) and total phenolic contents in extracts of 27 culinary herbs and 12 medicinal herbs were determined and rosmarinic acid was the predominant phenolic compound in selected herbs. Expand
Antioxidant activity in fruits and leaves of blackberry, raspberry, and strawberry varies with cultivar and developmental stage.
Jewel black raspberry and blackberries may be the richest source for antioxidants and a linear correlation between total phenolic content and ORAC activity for fruits and leaves was shown. Expand

The results indicate that both bark and heartwood extracts clearly have strong antioxidant effects, and the heartwood extract was more effective than the bark extract for the superoxide radical scavenging activity. Expand
Scavenging capacity of berry crops on superoxide radicals, hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen.
Blackberries had the highest antioxidant capacity inhibition of O(2)(*)(-), H(2)O(2), and OH(*). Expand
Effect of plant growth temperature on antioxidant capacity in strawberry.
The influence of four day/night growing temperature combinations on phenolic acid, flavonol, and anthocyanin content and their antioxidant activities against peroxyl radicals and singlet oxygen in fruit juice of Earliglow and Kent strawberry cultivars was studied. Expand

It is indicated that methyl jasmonate treatment appears to alter the metabolism of strawberry plants rendering the tissue better able to withstand water stress. Expand
Antioxidant capacity in cranberry is influenced by cultivar and storage temperature.
A positive relationship existed between ORAC values and anthocyanin or phenolic content in all 10 cranberry cultivars at different storage temperatures, suggesting that Early Black, Crowley, and Franklin had higher antioxidant capacities than the other cultivars. Expand
Effect of Pre-harvest Conditions on Antioxidant Capacity in Fruits
- S. Wang
- 1 June 2006
Public interest on the impact of food quality on human health has been increasing. In the past, the agricultural industry was focused on maximizing the quantity of fruits produced for commercial… Expand
Correlation of antioxidant capacities to oxygen radical scavenging enzyme activities in blackberry.
The antioxidant activity in blackberry juice was positively correlated to the activities of most antioxidant enzymes and the correlation coefficient between ORAC values and AsA/DHAsA ratios was as high as 0.972. Expand
