  journal={international food research journal},
In this study, the effect of different solvent including ethanol, n-hexane and ethyl acetate on antioxidant activity and total phenolic content (TPC) of winter melon (Benincasa hispida) seeds extract was investigated using conventional Soxhlet extraction (CSE). DPPH and ABTS scavenging activity and TPC results indicated that the seed extracts obtained using ethanol possessed the highest antioxidant activity and followed by ethyl acetate and n-hexane. By considering obtained results, it was…

Methods and Potential in Valorization of Banana Peels Waste by Various Extraction Processes: In Review

Over 114 million metric tons of bananas are produced each year. The peel, which accounts for roughly one-third of the fruit’s weight, is commonly discarded as waste in the food industry. For



Quantification of Phenolic Constituents and Antioxidant Activity of Pterodon emarginatus Vogel Seeds

The extract obtained from reflux using ethanol/water (70:30, v/v) showed the highest phenolic constituents level, and the EAF, BF and MF showed DPPH scavenging activities with IC50=163.22, 18.89 and 10.15 μg/ml, respectively.

Phenolic content and antioxidant activity of Pereskia grandifolia Haw. (Cactaceae) extracts

The ethyl acetate extract showed significantly the highest total phenolic content, DPPH scavenging ability and antioxidant activity in β-carotene bleaching assay while the hexane extract possessed significantly strongest reducing power.

Phytochemical Screening and Polyphenolic Antioxidant Activity of Aqueous Crude Leaf Extract of Helichrysum pedunculatum
