Antioxidant activity of dietary fruits, vegetables, and commercial frozen fruit pulps.
J Agric Food Chem. 2005.
Fruits, vegetables, and commercial frozen pulps consumed in the Brazilian diet were analyzed for antioxidant activities. The anthocyanin-rich samples showed the highest, concentration-dependent, antioxidant activities in both systems. The neutral and acidic flavonoids of red cabbage, red lettuce, black bean, mulberry, Gala apple peel, jambolao, acai frozen pulp, mulberry frozen pulps, and the acidic flavonoids of acerola frozen pulps showed the highest antioxidant activities. 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.
