Abstract:

Consumption of natural bioactive compounds and dietary fiber offers health benefits and protection against various diseases. The by-products of papaya is approximately 20-25% of fruit weight and it is a good source of minerals, fiber and phenolic compounds that have a wide range of pharmacological activities. The results of present study revealed that phenols, flavonoid and antioxidant activity of papaya peel paste and powder. As the concentration of the processed papaya peel increased, the antioxidant activity increased in comparison to control chapathis. The IC50 values were 0.11 and 0.18 mg/ml for PSP and PPP. The control chapathi, PSC and PPC had IC50 of 0.60, 0.37 and 0.35 mg/ml respectively indicating that heat treatment did not have much effect on papaya peel.


Keywords: Papaya peel, Phytochemical screening, Total phenols, Flavonoids, Antioxidants.
