Composition of phenolic compounds and antioxidant activity of commercial aqueous smoke flavorings.

The antioxidant activity of 12 aqueous commercial smoke flavorings used in the food industry was determined by two methods: bleaching of the carotenoid crocin and scavenging of the DPPH radical. The reaction with the DPPH radical was evaluated by calculating the effective concentration (EC50) and the antiradical efficiency (AE). A gas chromatography-mass… (More)
