Abstract:
Mungbean seeds grown in India were evaluated for total phenolic content, hydrophilic and hydrophobic phenols, o-dihydric phenols, flavonoids and antioxidant potential (free radical scavenging capacity by DPPH, total antioxidant activity using ferric thiocyanate assay). Analysis of variance revealed significant differences in phytochemical constituents in different methanolic extracts. Results concluded that phenolic contents in seed parts as well as in cooked cotyledons correlated (p<0.05) significantly with antioxidant properties in most of the extracts. Hence, the methanolic extracts of seed coat showed highest phenolics (68.62 mg GAEg-1) and highest scavenging efficiency against DPPH (0.61 mg/ml) as a consequence. The present study demonstrated mungbean as a legume enrich with high bioactive constituents as well as antioxidant potential and thus serve as future nutraceutical source.
