The effects of Aframomum danielli (A. danielli) anti-oxidant extract on lipid oxidation was studied. Mayonnaise samples were treated with antioxidant extracts and the anti-oxidant activities of A. danielli extracts from three different solvents; ethanol, n-hexane and diethyl ether and that of synthetic antioxidant butylated hydroxyl anisole (BHA) were evaluated using chemical parameters like peroxide value, pH and free fatty acid value. The mayonnaise sample treated with 200ppm concentration of…

Use of Natural Antioxidants in the Inhibition of Cholesterol Oxidation: A Review.
The use of natural antioxidants can be an alternative to synthetics to prevent the formation of COPs and extend the shelf life of foods susceptible to oxidative deterioration.


Extraction and identification of antioxidants from the spice Aframomum danielli
Successive extractions with diethyl ether and methanol of the whole seeds of the spice Aframomum danielli yielded diethyl ether extract (ADEE), 13.9%, and methanol extract (ADM), 3.4%, respectively.
Control of microbial growth, browning and lipid oxidation by the spice Aframomum danielli
Aframomum danielli (family Zingiberaceae) for Listeria monocytogenes LCDC 81861 was 390 ppm. No viable cells were found after a 4 h exposure of Bacillus cereus (initial concentration 103 cfu/ml) to

Screening of radical scavenging activity of some medicinal and aromatic plant extracts
Extracts of 12 medicinal and aromatic plants were investigated for their radical scavenging activity using DPPH and ABTS assays: Salvia sclarea, Salvia glutinosa, Salvia pratensis, Lavandula
Correlation between total antioxidant status and lipid peroxidation in hypercholesterolemia
The lipid peroxidation was significantly elevated and the total antioxidant level was significantly reduced in the serum of hypercholesterolemic patients when compared to the age and sex-matched healthy controls, thereby showing a negative correlation between these two parameters.
The presence of antioxidants in spices, specifically Rosemary and sage, is well known. However, the extracts of such spices usually have a strong odor and bitter taste and therefore cannot be used in
Antioxidant activity of quinones extracted from tanshen (Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge)
Six compounds have been solvent extracted from tanshen and separated by column and thin-layer chromatography. The structures have been identified by spectroscopic methods as rosmariquinone,
