  title={Antioxidant Potential of Flesh, Seed and Mace of Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans Houtt)},
  author={Jan R. Assa and Simon Bambang Widjanarko and Joni Kusnadi and Siegfried Berhimpon},
Antioxidant methanol extract potential of flesh, s eed and mace of nutmeg ( Myristica fragrans Houtt) were evaluated with methods of 1,1-diphenyl2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), ferric-reducing antioxidan t power (FRAP), ferrous ion chelating activity and an tioxidant activity assay in a linoleic acid system with ferrothiocyanate reagent (FTC). Total phenol and ph ytochemical of the extract were also evaluated. See d extract has the most powerful scavenging ability on free radicals based on test of…
