TOTAL POLYPHENOLS, FLAVONOIDS AND RADICAL SCAVENGING ACTIVITY OF BEEPOLLEN AND BEEBREAD COLLECTED FROM TRANSYLVANIA AREA

OLTICA COCAN, LIVIU AL. MARGHITAS, DANIEL DEZMIREAN

Abstract


The content of total phenolic compounds and flavonoids was measured in methanol beepollens’ and beebreads’ extracts as well as their radical scavenging activity. Beepoleens’ extracts were the most effective DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) radical scavengers, which contained the highest amount of polyphenols. The major contribution to the antiradical activity is due to the total polyphenolic compounds

Keywords


beepollen; beebread; total poliphenols; flavonoids; free radical scavenging activity; DPPH
