Cumin (Cuminum cyminum) seeds were extracted in 80% methanol to examine antioxidant properties and content of various potent antioxidant compounds. Antioxidant properties were assayed using DPPH free radical scavenging, inhibition of metal induced oxidation of proteins & lipids and protection of DNA against H2O2- induced oxidative stress. IC50 value of cumin was estimated by these mechanisms. Cumin extract had polyphenols (7.45±.10 mg GAE/g dry seeds) as major antioxidant principle. Gallic acid…
