|Abstract:||In this study the antioxidant activity of methanol extracts obtained from Mediterranean fruit products (prickly pear fruit jam and cream, myrtle berries jam, orange and mandarin-orange marmalades) was evaluated and compared in several in vitro models of oxidative stress. The compositional profile of methanol extracts (carbohydrates, organic acids, amino acids, and main phenolic compounds) was characterized by 1H NMR spectroscopy and the total phenol content was estimated by the Folin-Ciocalteu procedure. All extracts showed protective effect against thermal-cholesterol degradation, strictly correlated to total phenols. Extracts from prickly pear cream and myrtle berries jam preserved liposomes from Cu2+-induced oxidation, inhibiting the reduction of polyunsaturated fatty acids and the increase of malondialdehyde. Extracts from prickly pear cream and citrus marmalades significantly reduced the reactive oxygen species generation induced by tert-butylhydroperoxide in Caco-2 cell culture. The results of this work qualify all tested Mediterranean fruit preserves as a good source of biologically active components with considerable antioxidant potential.|
