Antioxidant Properties of Some Dried Fruits
Keywords:Dried fruits, Antioxidant activity, Total phenolic content, ORAC, TEAC
AbstractIn this study, total phenolic content and antioxidant capacity of various dried fruits were investigated. Total phenolic content of dried fruits (apple, quince, peach, orange, grapefruit, kiwi, banana, watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries and tomatoes) were between 219-5386 mg GAE/kg in dry matter (dm). TEAC and ORAC values of the samples were between 7.01-126 Âµmol TE/g dm and 11.69-211 Âµmol TE/g dm, respectively. Dried fruits can be considered as an important source of antioxidant components in diet with the higher antioxidant properties.
