[Anti-radical activity and oxidative stability of oils manufactured from flax, sesame and silybum seeds].Vopr Pitan. 2010; 79(4):4-8.VP
Comparative analysis of oils, prepared from flax, sesame and silybum seed composition, and adequate oil blends, prepared by mixing flax oil, sesame oil and silybum oil was performed. Antiradical activity was evaluated for the oils, both for their methanol-soluble phase and the fraction insoluble in methanol. DPPH radical scavenging activity expressed in Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity. Oxidative stability during 6-month store was evaluated by peroxide value and dienic conjugates content. Oils from seed composition show the more high antiradical activity and oxidative stability than adequate oil blends. A significant correlation was found between antiradical activity and gamma-/alpha-tocopherol ratio in oils.
