Dried Citrus peels, known as Chenpi in Chinese medicine, are a traditional medicine for the treatment of indigestion and inflammatory syndromes. In this study, we evaluated the effect of storage periods (1-year vs. 3-year) and heat treatment (90min vs. 3h at 120°C) on the total phenolic content (TPC) and bioactivity (anti-oxidant activity) of Chenpi. It was found that the long-term stored Chenpi had a higher TPC and superior 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical-scavenging activity… CONTINUE READING
