Considering the scanty information on Indian fruits, 36 commonly consumed fruits were assessed for inhibition of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances, superoxide scavenging activity and ferrous ion-chelating ability along with levels of micronutrients (namely ascorbic acid, β-carotene, riboflavin, thiamine, zinc, copper, iron, manganese, selenium and total polyphenols). Fruits exhibited 24–173% variability for the 13 study parameters. Fresh fruits exhibited 3.5–4 times higher antioxidant… Expand

Potential of traditionally cooked green leafy vegetables as natural sources for supplementation of eight micronutrients in vegetarian diets
The potential of 24 green leafy vegetables (GLV) in cooked form was assessed for the contents of eight micronutrients; bioavailability of iron, zinc and copper; and for proximate principles. TheExpand
Total antioxidant and ascorbic acid content of fresh fruits and vegetables: implications for dietary planning and food preservation
TLDR
Results indicate that the antioxidant capacity of vegetables decreases rapidly and significantly after fragmentation, and using FRASC as a biomonitoring tool will be useful in food production, preparation, preservation, and aid dietary choices to increase antioxidant and AA intake. Expand
Antioxidant capacity of phenolic phytochemicals from various cultivars of plums

TLDR
A bioactivity index (BI) for dietary cancer prevention is proposed to provide a new alternative biomarker for future epidemiological studies in dietary cancer Prevention and health promotion. Expand
Antioxidant activity and total phenolics of edible mushroom extracts
Abstract Methanol and water crude extracts from Shiitake mushroom (Lentinus edodes) and straw mushroom (Volvariella volvacea) were investigated for their antioxidant capacity in three differentExpand
Comparison of the antioxidant content of fruits, vegetables and teas measured as vitamin C equivalents.
TLDR
The DPPH method is used to quantify the total radical scavenging capacity (RSC) of a wide range of 'teas', fruits and vegetables and shows that one or two cups of tea would provide a similar amount of RSC as five potions ofruits and vegetables or 400 mg vitamin C equivalents. Expand
Antioxidant capacity of oat (Avena sativa L.) extracts. 1. Inhibition of low-density lipoprotein oxidation and oxygen radical absorbance capacity.
TLDR
Oats possess antioxidant capacity most of which is likely derived from polar phenolic compounds in the aleurone, which may be heat labile as the greatest activity was found among non-steam-treated pearlings. Expand
Antioxidative and anti-glycation activity of garcinol from Garcinia indica fruit rind.
TLDR
In a phenazine methosulfate/NADH-nitroblue tetrazolium system, garcinol exhibited superoxide anion scavenging activity and suppressed protein glycation in a bovine serum albumin/fructose system, suggesting it might be beneficial as a potent antioxidant and a glycation inhibitor under specified conditions.

Fortification of vegetarian diets for increasing bioavailable iron density using green leafy vegetables
TLDR
One such GLV-based meal per day will increase gross as well as bioavailable iron intake which will help in meeting daily requirements of iron especially for vegetarian women of reproductive age. Expand
Method for measuring antioxidant activity and its application to monitoring the antioxidant capacity of wines.
TLDR
The results obtained by the DMPD method are very similar to those obtained on the same samples when the radical cation of 2, 2'-azinobis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) (Miller et al., 1996) was used. Expand
