The antioxidant activity of the extracts from Gevuina avellana hulls was evaluated and compared with that of BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) and BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), using the beta-carotene bleaching assay, the accelerated oxidation of crude soybean oil, and the 2,2-diphenyl-beta-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging method. Solvents of different polarity were used to obtain the extracts. Both the extraction yield and the antioxidant activity were strongly dependent on the solvent… CONTINUE READING
