Pomegranate juice (PJ), Spirulina platensis extract (SP) and Echinacea purpurea Extract (EP) was chromatographically analyzed by High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for phenolic and flavonoid compound. Also, this extracts was determined for total phenolic content (TPC), total flavonoid content (TFC) and antioxidant activates in terms of scavenging DPPH free radicals. The TPC of (PJ) was 26.15mg gallic acid/g of extract, and TFC was 17.6 mg catechin/g of extract, while total phenolic… Expand

Antioxidant and eicosanoid enzyme inhibition properties of pomegranate seed oil and fermented juice flavonoids.
The antioxidant and eicosanoid enzyme inhibition properties of pomegranate fermented juice and seed oil flavonoids showed strong antioxidant activity close to that of butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and green tea, and significantly greater than that of red wine (Vitis vitifera). Expand
Identification of phenolic compounds from pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) seed residues and investigation into their antioxidant capacities by HPLC–ABTS+ assay
Abstract In this study, phenolic compounds were extracted and isolated from pomegranate seed residue (PSR). Phytochemicals and antioxidant capacity of extracts from PSR were firstly investigated.Expand
Antioxidant activity of pomegranate juice and its relationship with phenolic composition and processing.
HPLC-DAD and HPLC-MS analyses of the juices revealed that commercial juices contained the pomegranate tannin punicalagin while only traces of this compound were detected in the experimental juice obtained from arils in the laboratory, which shows that pomesgranate industrial processing extracts some of the hydrolyzable tannins present in the fruit rind.
