Abstract:

Medicago sativa is well- known medicinal herb found in India that have high amount of bioactive components which attribute to a strong free radical scavenging activity. In view of the above aspects the present work was undertaken to study the antioxidant potential (total phenols, total flavonoids and ascorbic acid content as well as DPPH scavenging activity) of unmalted and malted seeds with slight modification of standard methods. The study revealed that showed that malted seeds had significantly higher content of total phenols (41.8±0.09mgGAE/g), total flavonoids (13.5±0.02mgQE/g) and ascorbic acid content (8.5±0.05) as compared to unmalted seeds which was significantly increased by 17.7%, 16.3% and 15.9% at p˂0.05 level. Whereas, malted seeds exhibits highest antioxidant activity with IC50value (70.1µg/ml) followed by unmalted seeds (86.7µg/ml).Thus, it is concluded that malting as a processing could be used effectively to enhance the antioxidant potential of seeds.
