Berries grown in brazil: Anthocyanins Profiles and biological properties.
Sommaire de l'article
Phytochemical profiles of two Brazilian native fruits, pitanga (red and purple) and araçá (yellow and red), as well as strawberry cultivars Albion, Aromas, and Camarosa, blackberry cultivar Tupy, and blueberry cultivar Bluegen cultivated in Brazil were characterized for total phenolic content and total anthocyanin content by liquid chromatography coupled to a photodiode array and a quadrupole-time of flight mass spectrometry detector. Radical scavenging, antiherpes, and cytotoxic activities of these berries extracts were also evaluated.
Blueberry presented the highest total anthocyanin content (1202 mg equivalent of cyanidin-O-glucoside kg
Total anthocyanin content of all fruits had a strong positive correlation to their free radical scavenging activity suggesting anthocyanins contribute to the antioxidant potential of these fruits.
