Determination of Bioactive Compounds, Biochemical and Antioxidant Properties of Selected Minor Indigenous Fruits in Bangladesh

July 11, 2021 Agricultural Sciences 0

Minor fruits may contain antinutrients, but there isn’t enough primary data in Bangladesh. As a result, the current study was conducted to collect data for a database of minor fruit composition. The antioxidant activity of 1,1-diphenyl-2picryl hydrazyl (DPPH) scavenging and reducing power assays were used to assess the total phenolic (TPH), vitamin C, total carotene, and ß-carotene contents, as well as the antioxidant activity of selected minor fruits (RPA). To analyze phenolic compounds, high-performance liquid chromatography with a photodiode array detector and autosampler was used. Minor fruits contain a variety of phytochemicals, according to the findings. TPH, ascorbic acid, total flavonoid (TF), ß-carotene, total carotenoid (TC), and total anthocyanin content (TAC) were particularly high, with values ranging from 0.23-176.50 mg GAE/g, 16.67-664.92 mg/100 g, 2.26-150.02 mg QE/100 g, 1.41-6897.57 g/100 g, 1.26-98.24 mg/100 The IC50 ranged from 0.01-278.24 g of ascorbic acid/mg of extract for the parameters antioxidant activity, total antioxidant capacity, DPPH, reducing power capacity (RPC), ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP), metal chelating capacity (MCC), nitric oxide (NO), and free radical scavenging activity. 39.70-250.00 %, 3.21-634.00 %, 0.02-1817.88 % Fe2SO4/100g, 22.29-210.43 %, 0.02-70.50 %, and 4.98-856.70 g/g, respectively. Gallic acid (279.06 mg/100 g), vanilic acid (43.77 mg/100 g), -courmaric acid (178.96 mg/100 g), ferulic acid (20.44 mg/100 g), and lutein (91.13 g/100 g) have all been found and quantified in aonla, day fruit, elephant apple, and bilimbi. Furthermore, all of the minor fruits contain a high concentration of bioactive, biochemical, and antioxidant compounds that could be used in therapeutic applications.
