  title={Effect of Using Thyme, Carrot and Hibiscus to Some Crackers Products on their Nutritional and the Rapeutical Value},
  author={Lobna A. Shelbaya},
The main objective of the present study was carried to evaluate the possibility of enhancing antioxidant activities by using 10% of thyme, carrot and hibiscus powder fortified to crackers as natural colored antioxidants to produce healthy crackers, chemical composition and rheological properties were carried out, determination of phenolic compounds and antioxidant activity% noticed that thyme powder had the highest level of total phenols (12366 mg/100g), followed by carrot powder which was…

Phenolic compounds and their antioxidant properties in different tissues of carrots (Daucus carota L.)

Phenolic compounds, their antioxidant properties and distribution in carrots were investigated in this study. Carrots contained mainly hydroxycinnamic acids and derivatives. Among them chlorogenic

Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) seed oil is a rich source of gamma-tocopherol.

The global characteristics of roselle seed oil suggest that it could have important industrial applications, adding to the traditional use of roselsle sepals in the elaboration of karkade tea.

Antioxidant effects of aqueous extracts from dried calyx of Hibiscus sabdariffa Linn. (Roselle) in vitro using rat low-density lipoprotein (LDL).

It is demonstrated that the dried calyx extracts of roselle exhibits strong antioxidant activity in Cu(2+)-mediated oxidation of LDL (p<0.05) in vitro, and the inhibitory effect of the extracts on LDL oxidation was dose-dependent at concentrations ranging from 0.1 to 5 mg/ml.

Antioxidant phytochemicals and antioxidant capacity of biofortified carrots (Daucus carota L.) of various colors.

Purple-yellow carrots had the highest antioxidant capacity, followed by purple-orange carrots, and the other carrots did not significantly differ, which may help horticulturists develop carrots with higher antioxidant capacity.

Antioxidant activity and free radical‐scavenging capacity of ethanolic extracts of thyme, oregano, and marjoram

Phenolic compounds were extracted from thyme (Thymus vulgaris L.), oregano (Origanum vulgare L.) and marjoram (Origanum majorana L.) with 95% ethanol. A number of antioxidant and radical-scavenging

Thyme (Thymus vulgaris L.) leaves and its constituents increase the activities of xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes in mouse liver.

Thyme contains bifunctional inducers (i.e., substances capable of inducing both phase I and phase II enzymes) and that thymol and carvacrol may account for the effects of thyme.
