  • The residues obtained after hydrodistillation of th ree aromatic plants ( Calamintha grandiflora , Myrrhis odorata and Tussilago farfara ) were separated into solid and liquid fractions. T he liquid fraction was dried while the solid fraction was extracted with acetone, methanol or et hanol. Two main types of antioxidant activity tests were employed: i) assays to evaluate oxidation of fats, oils and other fat containing foods (Oxipress); ii) assays to evaluate radical scavenging activity in… CONTINUE READING
