Antioxidant Properties of Acerola (Malpighia Emarginata Dc.) and Acerola squash

S. Blessy Sagar | C. Kavitha [2] | Aparna Kuna [2]

Abstract: Antioxidant activity (DPPH radical activity, reducing power, SOA activity, total phenolic content and total flavonoid content) were evaluated in Indian variety of acerola and its squash. The average scavenging DPPH radical activity, reducing power assay and super oxide anion radical activity of acerola fruit ranges from 89.12 0.42 % inhibition, 3.0470.01absorption, 71.1101.68 %, and acerola squash was reported relatively less antioxidant properties. Total phenolic and total flavonid content of fruit is high and reported 809.14337.792 g of PE (pyrocatechol equivalent) and 47.9470.358 g RE (Rutin equivalent) respectively. Hence acerola squash serves as functional fruit beverage and available in off season
