    ABSTRACT: The global interest in natural food colours shows increasing attention for new product development to replace synthetic colourants, due to the strengthening of legislative rules and consumers' awareness of synthetic additives and chemicals in food. This study was designed to evaluate anthocyanin content and biological activities of press residues from four caneberries: two raspberry (Rubus idaeus, cv. 'Meeker' (RM) and 'Willamette' (RW)) and two blackberry (Rubus fruticosus, cv. 'Thornfree' (BT) and 'Čačanka' (BC)) cultivars. HPLC-DAD-ESI/MSn analysis identified cyanidin glycosides in all press residues, cyanidin 3-glucoside being prevalent in BC (1360.6 mg kg(-1) ) and BT (1397.7 mg kg(-1) ), and cyanidin 3-sophoroside in RM (349.2 mg kg(-1) ) and RW (581.0 mg kg(-1) ). Antioxidant capacity (AC), evaluated by ABTS (2,2'-azino-bis(3-ethyl benzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) assay, reducing power (RP) and α-glucosidase inhibitory potential (α-GIP) was higher in blackberry press residues. Total anthocyanin content was in good correlation with AC (r = 0.953; P<0.05), RP (r = 0.993, P<0.01) and α-GIP (r = 0.852, P<0.15). This study has revealed the potential for valorisation of juice-production byproducts for further industrial use as a rich source of bioactive compounds and natural colourants (mainly anthocyanins). Also, they can provide health-promoting effects beyond their general organoleptic acceptance in food product development.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract Crude extracts of two edible and two medicinal lignicolous mushroom species: Meripilus giganteus, Agrocybe aegerita, Fomes fomentarius and Xylaria polymorpha, growing wild in Serbia, were analyzed for their antioxidative and antibacterial potentials. Free radical scavenging capacity (RSC) on DPPH(•) and (•)OH was evaluated both by spectrophotometer and by Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopy against DPPH(•). The highest antioxidant and antibacterial bioactivity was obtained with F. fomentarius extracts (IC50 ≈ 10.7 µg/ml in DPPH(•) assay; 136.6 mg ascorbic acid equivalents (AAE)/g dry weight (d.w.) for ferric reducing antioxidant power FRAP). It also showed the highest total phenol (TP) (82.54 mg gallic acid equivalents (GAE)/g dry weight (d.w.)) and total flavonoid (TF) content (76.8 µg rutin equivalents (RE)/g dry weight (d.w.)). A. aegerita showed the best antioxidant activity (IC50 = 0.87 mg/ml) against DPPH(•) in ESR analysis. Total redox potential of extracts was in direct positive correlation with TP content (r(2 )= 0.98) and TF content (r(2 )= 0.58). GC/MS analysis detected major constituents of extracts, confirming the presence of the following organic and phenolic acids: fumaric, succinic, mallic, 4-hydroxy benzoic, gentisic, protocatechuic, vanillic, gallic and p-coumaric acid.

    ABSTRACT: The by-product of food processing is often utilized as feed, and for the preparation of dietary fiber and biofuel. However, these products are also promising sources of bioactive antioxidants and color giving compounds, which could be used as additives in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry. The aim of this study was to investigate the phytochemical profile, and the antiradical, antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities of industrial beetroot pomace extract (BPE). The content of phenolics (45.68 mg gallic acid equivalents g(-1)), flavonoids (25.89 mg rutin equivalents g(-1)) and betalains (4.09 mg betanin g(-1); 7.32 mg vulgaxanthin I g(-1)) were determined spectrophotometrically. The antiradical activity on DPPH (EC(50)(DPPH)˙ = 0.0797 mg ml(-1)), hydroxyl (EC(50)˙(OH) = 0.0655 mg ml(-1)) and superoxide anion (EC(50)(O2)˙(-) = 1.0625 mg ml(-1)) radicals were measured by electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy. The antimicrobial activity was determined using the agar-well diffusion method. Gram(-) bacteria (Salmonella typhimurium, Citrobacter freundii) and Gram(+) bacteria, (Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus sciuri, Bacillus cereus) showed high susceptibility, while yeasts and moulds were resistant. BPE exhibits cytotoxic properties against Ehrlich carcinoma (EAC) cells in vivo due to induction of oxidative stress. The largest decreases in EAC cell numbers were observed in the pre-treated male (approximately 53%) and female (approximately 47%) mice, and also the EAC cell viability was decreased after administration of BPE. The activities of the antioxidant enzymes, xanthine oxidase (XOD) and peroxidase (Px), were significantly different between the untreated EAC control group and all other groups that were treated with BPE. The XOD and Px activities were very low in untreated malignant cells, but increased significantly after administration of BPE. Our results show that BPE holds promise in the food industry as a source of bioactive compounds.

    ABSTRACT: Serbian soybean genotype Ana was gamma irradiated at doses of 1, 2, 4, and 10 kGy in order to evaluate the influence of gamma irradiation on isoflavone (genistein, daidzein, and their glycosides genistin and daidzin) contents and hydroxyl radical scavenging effect (HRSE). The increase in genistin and daidzin contents as well as antioxidant activities was observed especially at doses of 4 and 10 kGy. Results were also compared with our previous results relating to total phenol content (TPC), DPPH radical scavenger capacity (DPPH RSC), and ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP). Our results indicated that doses up to 10 kGy improve the antioxidant activities of soybean and also nutritional quality with respect to isoflavone content. All results were analyzed by multivariate techniques (correlation matrix calculation and autoscaling transformation of data). Significant positive correlations were observed between genistin, daidzin, DPPH RSC, and HRSE.

    ABSTRACT: Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) is an alternative crop belonging to the Polygonaceae family. In comparison to antioxidant activity of frequently used cereals, buckwheat has been reported to possess higher antioxidant activity (AOA), mainly due to high rutin content. The objective of this work was to determine the main antioxidant compounds and AOA of buckwheat grain fractions (whole grain, hull, and groat). Buckwheat grain fractions were extracted with ethanol/water (80/20, v/v), followed by determination of total phenolic and flavonoid content. Quantification of phenolic compounds and tocopherols was performed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The AOA was estimated by 2 direct electron spin resonance (ESR) and 4 indirect (spectrophotometric) tests. Significantly higher contents of total phenolics and total flavonoids were found in buckwheat hull than in whole grain and groat. Protocatechuic, syringic, and sinapic acid, rutin, and quercetin were found in all tested fractions, whereas vanilic acid was found in whole grain and hull. The content of total tocopherols in investigated samples ranged from 23.3 mmol/g for hull to 61.8 mmol/g for groat. Hull was superior in scavenging activity on 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH(•) ), hydroxyl ((•) OH), and superoxide anion (O(2) (•-) ) radicals, reducing activity, AOA by β-carotene bleaching method, and chelating activity on Fe(2+) as evidenced by its lower IC(50) value. Obtained results can broaden the utilization of buckwheat, especially a share of hull in whole grain flour production. Practical Application:  Obtained results suggest possibility to supplement the whole grain buckwheat flour with hull, which leads toward better usage of by-products in buckwheat production, and enhancement of antioxidant potential of the final product.

    ABSTRACT: Waste obtained from six genotypes of tomato was subjected to evaluation as potential sources of hydrophilic antioxidants on the basis of content of total phenolics (TPh; from 11.7 to 18.6 mg/g), total flavonoids (TFl; from 7.62 to 12.1 mg/g) and ascorbic acid (AA; from 0.51 to 1.89 mg/g), and antioxidant activities. The antioxidant activities of tomato waste extracts were evaluated using 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activity, ferrous ion chelating activity (CA) and reducing power (RP) assay. The O(2) tomato waste extract was found to have the strongest antioxidant activity in scavenging DPPH radicals (effective concentration, EC(50) = 0.18 mg/ml). The Saint Pierre tomato waste extract showed the best performance in RP assay (EC(50) = 1.57 mg/ml). The Rutgers tomato waste extract exhibited a strongest CA (EC(50) = 1.49 mg/ml). The linear correlation analysis produced moderate-to-high correlation coefficients between the antioxidant activities and TPh, TFl and AA.

    ABSTRACT: Apple pomace is an easily accessible source of bioactive compounds which can be used for various purposes in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry. Six types of apple pomace extracts were tested to study their health benefits, free radical scavenging and antiproliferative activities. The radical scavenging activity was determined by electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy. Antiproliferative action was measured using MTT [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol- 2-yl)2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide] colorimetric assay in cervix epithelioid carcinoma (HeLa) and colon adenocarcinoma (HT-29) human cancer cell lines. All extracts suppressed the formation of 2,2-diphenyl- 1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH○) and hydroxyl-free radical in a dose-dependent manner. In the presence of 12.5 mg/ ml Pinova, Reinders and Nectar pomace extract, the ESR DPPH○ signals vanished. The ○OH was completely scavenged in the presence of 45 mg/ml or higher concentration of the investigated extracts. Pinova and Braeburn pomace extracts showed the strongest antiproliferative activity against the investigated human cancer cell lines. Also, HeLa cells were found more sensitive than HT-29 cells to all extracts. Although the relationship between radical scavenging activities and phenolic contents or flavonol glycosides (R(2)≥0.80) was high, there were no significant correlations between the total phenolic contents or individual phenolic compounds and the antiproliferative activity.

    ABSTRACT: Free radicals are implicated in the aetiology of some gastrointestinal disorders such as gastric ulcer, colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. In the present study we investigated the antioxidant and genoprotective activity of some rotenoids (i.e. boeravinones) isolated from the roots of Boerhaavia diffusa, a plant used in the Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract. Antioxidant activity has been evaluated using both chemical (Electron Spin Resonance spectroscopy, ESR) and Caco-2 cells-based (TBARS and ROS) assays. DNA damage was evaluated by Comet assay, while pERK(1/2) and phospho-NF-kB p65 levels were estimated by western blot. Boeravinones G, D and H significantly reduced the signal intensity of ESR induced by hydroxyl radicals, suggesting a scavenging activity. Among rotenoids tested, boeravinone G exerted the most potent effect. Boeravinone G inhibited both TBARS and ROS formation induced by Fenton's reagent, increased SOD activity and reduced H(2)O(2)-induced DNA damage. Finally, boeravinone G reduced the levels of pERK(1) and phospho-NF-kB p65 (but not of pERK(2)) increased by Fenton's reagent. It is concluded that boeravinone G exhibits an extraordinary potent antioxidant activity (significant effect in the nanomolar range). The MAP kinase and NF-kB pathways seem to be involved in the antioxidant effect of boeravinone G. Boeravinone G might be considered as lead compound for the development of drugs potentially useful against those pathologies whose aetiology is related to ROS-mediated injuries.

    ABSTRACT: In this study we investigated antioxidative and antiproliferative activity of different horsetail (Equisetum arvense L.) extracts. The antioxidative activity was measured by the electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy-spin trapping method. The influence of different horsetail extracts during lipid peroxidation of (1) sunflower oil induced by the lipophilic azo-initiator 4,4'-azobis(4-cyanovaleric acid) and (2) soybean phosphatidylcholine liposomes induced by the hydrophilic azo-initiator 2,2'-azobis(2-amidinopropane) dihydrochloride was studied. Antiproliferative activity was measured using the sulforhodamine B colorimetric assay on the human cancer cell lines HeLa, HT-29, and MCF7. The results of ESR analysis confirmed that the extracts investigated suppressed the formation of lipid peroxyl radicals in both systems investigated in a dose-dependent manner. The results indicate that n-butanol, methanol, ethyl acetate, and water extracts had significant peroxyl radical scavenging activity. Extracts inhibited cell growth that was dependent on cell line, type of extract, and extract concentration. Ethyl acetate extract exhibited the most prominent antiproliferative effect, without inducing any cell growth stimulation on human tumor cell lines. The results obtained suggest that the horsetail extracts could be used as an easily accessible source of natural antioxidants and as potential phytochemicals.

    ABSTRACT: The antioxidant activity of water, ethanol and methanol Hieracium pilosella L. extracts is reported. The antioxidative activity was tested by spectrophotometrically measuring their ability to scavenge a stable DPPH(•) free radical and a reactive hydroxyl radical trapped by DMPO during the Fenton reaction, using the ESR spectroscopy. Total phenolic content and total flavonoid content were evaluated according to the Folin-Ciocalteu procedure, and a colorimetric method, respectively. A HPLC method was used for identification of some phenolic compounds (chlorogenic acid, apigenin-7-O-glucoside and umbelliferone). The antioxidant activity of the investigated extracts slightly differs depending on the solvent used. The concentration of 0.30 mg/mL of water, ethanol and methanol extract is less effective in scavenging hydroxyl radicals (56.35, 58.73 and 54.35%, respectively) in comparison with the DPPH(•) radical scavenging activity (around 95% for all extracts). The high contents of total phenolic compounds (239.59-244.16 mg GAE/g of dry extract) and total flavonoids (79.13-82.18 mg RE/g of dry extract) indicated that these compounds contribute to the antioxidative activity.

    ABSTRACT: The antioxidant and scavenging activities of above ground parts of Equisetum arvense L., Equisetum ramosissimum L. and Equisetum telmateia L. phosphate buffer (pH 7) extracts were investigated. Activities of antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, catalase, guaiacol peroxidase and glutathione peroxidase), quantities of reduced glutathione, malonyldialdehyde, superoxide and hydroxyl radicals and flavonoid, soluble protein, chlorophyll a, b and carotenoid contents were determined. The total antioxidant capacity was determined by ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) assay. The Equisetum telmateia extract demonstrated scavenging and antioxidant properties better than Equisetum ramosissimum and Equisetum arvense. The ESR signal of DMPO-OH radical adducts in the presence of Equisetum telmateia phosphate buffer (pH 7) extract was reduced by 98.9% indicating that Equisetum telmateia could be a useful source of antioxidants with huge scavenging ability.

    ABSTRACT: The aromatic herb Melissa officinalis L. can be used as an easily accessible source of natural antioxidants and as a possible food supplement and as a phytochemical. Radical scavenging, antibacterial, and antiproliferative activities of petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate, n-butanol, and water extracts of M. officinalis L. extracts were investigated. The results of antioxidative activity, obtained by electron spin resonance spectroscopy, confirmed that investigated extracts suppressed the formation of 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), hydroxyl, and lipid peroxyl radicals in all investigated systems in a dose-dependent manner. The maximum DPPH and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities (SA(DPPH) = SA(OH) = 100%) were achieved in the presence of n-butanol extract at concentrations of 0.4 mg/mL and 0.5 mg/mL, respectively. The highest lipid peroxyl scavenging activity (93.20%) was observed at a higher concentration (5 mg/mL) of n-butanol extract in the lipid peroxidation system. The most effective antibacterial activities were expressed by petroleum ether and ethyl acetate extracts on Sarcina lutea. Chloroform extract showed the strongest antiproliferative effect with 50% inhibitory concentration values of 0.09 mg/mL and 0.10 mg/mL for HeLa and MCF-7 cell lines, respectively. The present study demonstrated the high phenolic content and radical scavenging, antibacterial, and antiproliferative activities of extracts of M. officinalis L. originating from Serbia.
