An Investigation about Antioxidant Capacity of Fruit Nectars
Ilkay Tosun and N. Sule Ustun

Abstract:
Nectars of some fruits, including orange, sour cherry, peach and apricot sold in Samsun markets were analyzed for total antioxidant capacity, total phenolic content, ascorbic acid content and total carotenoids (except sour cherry). Ferric reducing/antioxidant power (FRAP) assay was used to measure the total antioxidant power. Expressed as μmol of antioxidant power/ml of nectars, average FRAP values were as 6.54 for orange nectars, 8.01 for sour cherry nectars, 5.68 for apricot nectars and 5.19 for peach nectars.
