Analysis of Total Phenol in Developed Nutraceutical by UV-VIS Spectrophotometry

Sasikala.S | Radhaisri.S

Abstract: The consumption of fruit plays important roles as a health protecting factor. Grape and mangosteen fruit are structurally diverse, from simple molecule to oligomers and polymers usually designated as tannins. This beneficial effect is mainly associated with the antioxidant activity of the phenolic compounds which are largely present in this fruits. This study was to quantitatively estimate the total phenol content in the developed nutraceutical product with the combination of grape seed extract and mangosteen extract. The developed nutraceutical contains a desirable amount of phenols. Spectrometry in the ultraviolet region is a useful tool for the analysis of polyphenols. So the developed nutraceutical is analyzed by proposed Ultra Violet-Visible Spectrophotometry method. In this study the result shows both grape seed extract and mangosteen extract analysed by Ultra Violet visible spectrophotometer contain some amount of phenolic content.
