Abstract:Chemical composition, polyphenolic and flavonoid contents, and antioxidant activity were determined in date seeds derived from four Tunisian date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) cultivars namely: Goundi, Chekena, Mnekher and Remtha. Sodium and potassium contents in date seeds were determined by flame photometry, phenolic compounds by the Folin-Ciocalteu method, flavonoids by colorimetric quantification, and the antioxidant activity by the DPPH free radical scavenging method. Crude protein content varied widely (p <…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
