Two exotic fruits (Snake fruit and Mangosteen) were characterized by polyphenols, proteins and antioxidant potentials and by their influence on plasma lipids and antioxidant activity in rats fed cholesterol. The content of polyphenols (14.9 ± 1.5 and 9.2 ± 0.8 mg GAE g−1) and antioxidant potential (46.7 ± 4.7 and 72.9 ± 7.4 μmol TE g−1) in Snake fruit was significantly higher than in Mangosteen (P<0.05). Twenty male Wistar rats were divided into four dietary groups: Control, Chol, Chol/Snake… CONTINUE READING
