A set of studies
performed by Sabinsa Corporation revealed that the Curcuminoids and Tetrahydrocurcuminoids
are more potent antioxidants than the commonly used synthetic antioxidant, Butylated
OF ANTIOXIDANT POTENTIAL
- In the DPPH
radical scavenging method, the ability of an antioxidant to bind the 1:1
diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl-radical (a very stable free radical species) is measured, using
various concentrations of the selected antioxidants.
- A compound
with high antioxidant potential effectively traps this radical thereby preventing its
propagation and the resultant chain reaction.
