Rapid photometric assay evaluating antioxidative activity in edible plant material.

The objective of the present study is to develop a rapid and convenient method to determine antioxidative activity. It was determined by the inhibition capacity on the hemoglobin-catalyzed peroxidation of linoleic acid. The appropriate conditions for reaction of 4 mM linoleic acid were 0.002% hemoglobin at 37 degrees C for 10 min. Adding methanol to the… CONTINUE READING
