Red cabbage (RC), known also as purple cabbage is very low in saturated fat, cholesterol and a source of thiamin, riboflavin, folate, K, Ca, Fe, Mg and Mn, dietary fiber, vitamins A, C, K, B, providing big amounts of anthocyanins and presenting high antioxidant properties which may decrease the risk of cardiovascular diseases, brain disorders and cancer.

Development and characterization of biocolor (Brassica oleracea var. capitata F. rubra) fortified lime squash
The major pigment of purple cabbage is anthocyanin, responsible for many of the attractive colors, from scarlet to blue. It represents about 196.5 mg of polyphenols per 100g of raw purple cabbageExpand

Utilization of artificial food colorants has obtained particular concern for long time consumption. R ed cabbage (Brassica oleracea L. var. capitata forma rubra L.) was extracted to produce aExpand
Combined application of poultry litter biochar and NPK fertilizer improves cabbage yield and soil chemical properties
Abstract Low soil fertility is a major problem limiting peri-urban vegetable production in the Kumasi metropolis. This study was conducted to assess the effects of poultry litter biochar (PLB) andExpand


Content of Basic Nutrients and Minerals in Heads of Selected Varieties of Red Cabbage (Brasicca oleracea var. capitata f. rubra)
The presented results concern three varieties of red cabbage: koda, kissendrup SwE and haco POl, whose edible parts were the richest in dry matter, vitamin C, sugars and organic acids. Expand
Antioxidant capacity and content of Brassica oleracea dietary antioxidants
Summary This study has evaluated the antioxidant capacity and content of both water- and lipid-soluble antioxidants present in red and white cabbages, savoy cabbage and Brussels sprouts. TotalExpand
Flavonoids and Antioxidant Capacity of Various Cabbage Genotypes at Juvenile Stage
Ten fresh cabbage genotypes representing fresh-market, processing, and storage types were evaluated for total phenols, antioxidant capacity, and flavonoids at the 3-wk juvenile stage, at which time plants are uniform in size when grown under identical soil and environmental conditions. Expand
Antioxidant and antiproliferative activities of common vegetables.
The bioactivity index for dietary cancer prevention is proposed to provide a simple reference for consumers to choose vegetables in accordance with their beneficial activities, and the phenolics antioxidant index was proposed to evaluate the quality/quantity of phenolic contents in these vegetables. Expand
Phenolic compounds were extracted from white cabbage and sauerkraut using 80% aqueous methanol. The extract of sauerkraut was characterised by a higher content of total phenolics (8.25 mg/g) thanExpand
Antioxidant activity of dietary fruits, vegetables, and commercial frozen fruit pulps.
Fruits, vegetables, and commercial frozen pulps consumed in the Brazilian diet were analyzed for antioxidant activities and there was no relationship between total phenolics content, vitamin C, and antioxidant activity, suggesting that the antioxidant activity is a result of a combination of different compounds having synergic and antagonistic effects. Expand
The Antioxidant Activity of Regularly Consumed Fruit and Vegetables Reflects their Phenolic and Vitamin C Composition
Fruit and vegetables rich in anthocyanins demonstrated the highest antioxidant activities, followed by those rich in flavanones and flavonols, while the hydroxycinnamate-rich fruit consistently elicited the lower antioxidant activities. Expand
Total antioxidant activity and phenolic content in selected vegetables
This study was carried out to determine the total antioxidant activity and phenolic content of selected common vegetables. The effect of thermal treatment on antioxidant activity and phenolic contentExpand
Contents of Heavy Metals, Nitrates, and Nitrites in Cabbage
The contents of lead, cadmium, zinc, copper, iron, manganese, nitrites, and nitrates were determined in six species of cabbage of the cruciferous family obtained from different areas of Poland. TheExpand
