The antioxidant properties and the flavonoid composition of extracts of different hydrophobicity prepared from the entire edible flowers of Agave durangensis were evaluated. Separately, total extracts of tepals and anthers–pollen were analyzed in the same manner. The high performance liquid chromatography with photodiode array detection (HPLC–DAD) analysis revealed a total of eight flavonols (five quercetin glycosides and three kaempferol glycosides), varying in number and concentration in the… Expand
