Abstract

Moringa oleifera is among the most commonly cultiva ted plant all over the world. It has high economic impact due to the medicinal and nutritional values. The seeds of M. oleifera also contain various constituents th at are useful for therapeutic purposes. The aim of this study was to quantify some important antioxidant compounds of M. oleifera seed extract. Total phenolics (TP), total tannins ( TT) and total flavonoids (TF) content were determin ed by colorimetric method. The results showed that the se ed extract contain total phenolics of 10.179 ± 2.89 4 (mg Gallic acid equivalents / g dry matter) which is higher co mpared to flavonoid 2.900 ± 0.0002 (mg Quercetin eq uivalents / g dry matter) and tannic acid of 0.890 ± 0.020 (mg Gallic acid equivalents / g dry matter). Total phenolic content of the seeds is likely to be a key for determining the free radical scavenging and ROS reducing ability o f the seeds.
