Positive health effects of integral cereals consuming is attributed to bioactive substances. This research is conducted to test antioxidant water extract capacity of different kinds of cereals, compared to the values of total phenols. The total antioxidant capacity was estimated by FRAP assay. The total phenolic content was measured by Folin-Ciocalteau assay. Antioxidant capacity amounted 50,04–385,71 μmol Fe II /L of extract, and values of total phenols 2,95–20,35 mg GA equiv/L of extract on… Expand
