- The antioxidant capacity in mango (pulp, peel, and seed) was measured using spectrophotometric and electrochemical methods in order to make traditional methods comparable with electrochemical ones, using reference standards Gallic Acid and Trolox. ABTS, DPPH, Total polyphenols, and electrochemical index were evaluated. In order to present the electrochemical results in a more comparable way, the voltammetric charge (using Differential pulse voltammetry) was used. Spectrophotometric methods allowed to determine the difference in contents of metabolites with antioxidant capacity, except in peel and seed, while the electrochemical method separated the three extracts and is not affected by interferences. Spectrophotometric methods present a good correlation with electrochemical methods, using the same reference standards, therefore, a better comparison between methods is possible.
