Comparative Evaluation of Three Essential Oils as Functional Antioxidants and Natural Flavoring Agents in Ice Cream

  title={Comparative Evaluation of Three Essential Oils as Functional Antioxidants and Natural Flavoring Agents in Ice Cream},
  author={Khaled M. A. Ramadan and Ihab S. Ashoush},
Three essential oils, namely, thyme (Thymus vulgaris), basil (Ocimum basilicum) and marjoram (Majorana hortensis) were characterized by means of GC-MS and their antioxidant activity by different assays. Basil essential oil was higher in1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radical (DPPH) scavenging activity than other two oils. Reducing power determined by ferricyanide method was found to be concentration-dependent for the tested essential oils; the basil essential oil was also found to have…

Vitamin A and carotenoids are often cited as members of a family of antioxidant vitamins that can show protective effects against oxidative stress and some chronic diseases, although in nature vitamin A seems to be protected from oxidation by other physiological antioxidants rather than serving a protective role itself.

Antioxidant Determinations by the Use of a Stable Free Radical

METHODS for measuring antioxidants and appraising antioxidant activity appear to be of two general types. If the chemical nature of the antioxidant is known, one may strive for a test specific for
