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={K. Ramadan and I. 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… Expand

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.
