Abstract:

Evaluation of twenty traditional rice varieties grown in Karnataka, as a dehusked grain was performed with respect to Phytochemical and Antioxidant capacity. Traditional rice varieties varied significantly (p<0.05) for all the parameters studied. Phytochemicals namely, phytic acid, tannic acid and total polyphenol content were studied in twenty traditional rice varieties varied significantly (p<0.05) from 236.94 to 558.67 mg, 25.74 to 56.88 mgGAE, and 47.82 to 160.71 mg per 100 g respectively. Total antioxidant capacity varied significantly from 257.93 µM to 800.25 µM ascorbic acid equivalent per 100 g. Traditional rice varieties contained good amount of phytochemicals and antioxidant activity which are helpful in maintaining good health and wellness.
