JURADO TEIXEIRA, Bertha et al. Evaluation of the content of phenolic compounds and antioxidant capacity of the ethanol extracts of the fruits of aguaymanto (Physalis peruviana L.) from different locations of Peru. Rev. Soc. Quím. Perú [online]. 2016, vol.82, n.3, pp.272-279. ISSN 1810-634X.

The aguaymanto is a native species of the Peruvian highland, which has a tiny fruit that disagrees with its greatness and nutritional therapy. The present investigation had as objetive to assess and compare the total polyphenol content by the Folin-Ciocalteu method and antioxidant capacity of the fruits of Physalis peruviana L., from Huánuco, Junín, Ancash y Cajamarca by the method of the DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picril-hidrazilo). The fruit coming from Huánuco presented a higher content of phenolic compounds expressed as 149.3 ± 1.62 mg/Eq of gallic acid/100g fruit. In addition, greater antioxidant capacity obtaining as inhibitory concentration IC50 1.86 mg/mL, compared with the fruits from Junín, Ancash y Cajamarca; and it would be a good source of consumption in benefit for the health.

Keywords : Physalis peruviana L; polyphenols; antioxidant.
