Antioxidant Properties of Pecan Nut [ Carya illinoinensis (Wangenh.) C. Koch] Shell Infusion

The nutritional composition of Pecan nut [ Carya illinoinensis (Wangenh.) C. Koch] shells and the total phenolic and condensed tannin contents of Pecan nut shell infusion were determined and the

Changes in bioactive compounds content and antioxidant capacity of pecan nuts [Carya illinoinensis (Wangenh. K. Koch)] during storage

Results evidenced that drying and storage time are the most significant variables regarding pecan nuts postharvest processing; nonetheless, further research related to the relationship between condensed tannins degradation and the increments in DPPH antioxidant capacity is needed.

Phenolic compounds and antioxidant activity of kernels and shells of Mexican pecan (Carya illinoinensis).

The phenolic composition and antioxidant activity of pecan kernels and shells cultivated in three regions of the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, were analyzed and a strong correlation existed among the results obtained using these four methods.

Dynamic Changes in Phenolics and Antioxidant Capacity during Pecan (Carya illinoinensis) Kernel Ripening and Its Phenolics Profiles

Forty phenolics were tentatively identified in pecan kernels, of which two were first reported in the genus Carya, six wereFirst reported in Carya illinoinensis, and one was first report in its kernel, providing proof of the high antioxidant capacity of pecan kernel kernels.

Effects of Extraction Solvents and Provenances on Phenolic Contents and Antioxidant Activities of Cumin (Cuminum cyminum L.) Seeds

Polyphenol contents and 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radical (DPPH) scavenging activity of cumin (Cuminum cyminum L.) seed extracts were compared depending on their geographical origin (Tunisia and

Influence of Cultivar on Nutritional Composition and Nutraceutical Potential of Pecan Growing in Uruguay

Composition and antioxidant properties of sixteen pecan [Carya illinoinensis (Wangenh) K. Koch] cultivars grown simultaneously in a single experimental orchard in Uruguay were evaluated to




Eight phenolic acids were isolated from the testa of Stuart pecan kernels and identified by gas-liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (GLC-MS). Acid quantities decreased significantly during 12 wk

Fatty acid composition and its relationship with physicochemical properties of pecan (Carya illinoensis) oil

The composition and physicochemical properties of pecan (Carya illinoensis) kernels and oils from different native trees of the central region of Mexico were investigated. The main compositional

Effect of gamma irradiation on flavonoids in strawberries

Abstract. In unirradiated strawberries, in addition to ellagic acid, five flavonoids were identified by comparison to standards by reversed-phase chromatography with diode-array detection:

Tocopherols and total phenolics in 10 different nut types

Tocopherol Quantification by HPLC in Pecans and Relationship to Kernel Quality during Storage

Changes in tocopherols were followed in Stuart, Desirable and Schley cultivars during storage at 23.9°C and 60-70% RH and 0.6°C and 75% RH for 12 mo. Quality changes in the pecans were monitored

Metabolism of antioxidant and chemopreventive ellagitannins from strawberries, raspberries, walnuts, and oak-aged wine in humans: identification of biomarkers and individual variability.

Results indicate that urolithin B (a previously described antiangiogenic and hyaluronidase inhibitor compound) is a biomarker of human exposure to dietary ETs and may be useful in intervention studies with ET-containing products.


The red-brown discoloration in the testa of pecan [Carya illinoensis (Wang) K. Koch] kernels appears to be caused by the oxidation of endogenous leucoanthocyanidins to phlobaphenes, cyanidin and

Lipophilic and hydrophilic antioxidant capacities of common foods in the United States.

The data demonstrated that processing can have significant effects on ORAC(FL).
