Item Type: Student Project Report
Additional Information: The increased production of sapota fruit accompanied with non-availability of acceptable commercial products and short storage period due to high perishability, demands studies on extension of shelf life of sapota and production of different products of high health benefits. In this regards extensive review of literature indicates lack of previous reports or scientific studies on nutraceutical properties of sapota fruits in specific to their antioxidant property. Hence the present investigation is aimed to study the antioxidant property of fresh sapota fruit juice/pulp and their products. This facilitates the production of products of high nutraceutical properties of health benefits from sapota. This study clearly demonstrate that the sapota juice contains a number of antioxidant compounds of different group of chemicals viz. phenolics, carotenoids and ascorbic acid, which can effectively scavenge various reactive oxygen species/free radicals under in vitro conditions. The broad range of activity of the sapota juice demonstrated multiple antioxidant activity of sapota juice clearly indicates the potential health beneficial effect of sapota juice.
