The purpose of the present study was to investigate the antioxidant activity and fructans content in ethanol and water extracts of roots of elecampane (Inula helenium L.), a Bulgarian medicinal plant. The extraction procedure included 95% (v/v) ethanol extraction and subsequent water treatment. The antioxidant activity was evaluated by several reliable methods such as DPPH-, ABTS-, FRAP- and CUPRAC-assays, as well as the total phenolic content. In addition, the total fructans and sugar content… Expand

Inula helenium L. (elecampane) is a widely occurring perennial plant species in Europe and East Asia, belonging to the Compositae family. Roots of I. helenium have been traditionally used for theExpand
Comparative effects of n-hexane and methanol extracts of elecampane (Inula helenium L.) rhizome on growth performance, carcass traits, feed digestibility, intestinal antioxidant status and ileal microbiota in broiler chickens
TLDR
Overall, MEER seems to be a better choice of treatment owing to its more effective benefits on broiler performance, ileal microbiota, gut morphology and antioxidant ability of the intestinal mucosa. Expand
Inulin from Pachyrhizus erosus root and its production intensification using evolutionary algorithm approach and response surface methodology
TLDR
Production of inulin from yam bean tubers by ultrasonic assisted extraction (UAE) was optimized by using response surface methodology (RSM) and genetic algorithms (GA) and UAE provided a shade better purity of extracted inulin than other two techniques. Expand

EVALUATION OF FRUCTAN CONTENTS IN THE TAPROOTS OF PLANTS LACTUCA SERRIOLA L. AND SONCHUS OLERACEUS L.
TLDR
The roots of two widespread plants in Bulgariaprickly lettuce and annual sow thistle are evaluated as a source of inulin-type fructans as the fructoligosacharides fraction dominates in ethanolic extracts to conclude that the roots are rich source of fructan. Expand
