- ... The health-relevant functionality of fruit extracts from 12 Rubus cultivars was evaluated for potential diabetes and hypertension management. Inhibition of in vitro α-amylase, α-glucosidase and angiotensin-1-converting enzyme (ACE-1) activity was evaluated in conjunction with phenolic content and antioxidant activity. Black raspberries, Jewel and MacBlack cultivars, had the highest overall phenoli ...

- ... Bioactive compounds were investigated in eight cultivars of broccoli grown under North Indian conditions over 2 years. The cultivars showed significant differences in phenols, antioxidant activity and other antioxidant constituents including ascorbic acid, β-carotene, α-tocopherol and chlorophyll. Free phenolics ranged from 19.60 to 41.40 mg/100 g fresh weight and on an average constituted 73% of ...
