TAILIEUCHUNG - Estimation of CUPRAC activity in some grape genotypes

The potential of antioxidants in our diet has attained the major focus now-adays. Grape often termed as ‘Super food of the future’ has been a crop of choice to analyse for various its nutraceuticals. In the present study, the antioxidant activity in terms of CUPRAC was determined for 11 grape hybrids along with their 9 parents. The highest antioxidant activity was exhibited by the genotype ‘ R1P19’ and among parents, it was found maximum in ‘Beauty Seedless’. In conclusion, the potent antioxidant rich hybrids could be utilized to manufacture various nutraceutical products and also in improvement of various genotypes. | 2019 8 2 2301-2305 EXCELLENT PUBLISHERS International Journal of Current Microbiology and Applied Sciences ISSN 2319-7706 Volume 8 Number 02 2019 Journal homepage http Original Research Article https Estimation of CUPRAC Activity in some Grape Genotypes Tanushree Sahoo1 Kaluram2 and Debashish Hota3 division of Fruits and Horticultural Technology ICAR-Indian Agricultural Research Institute New Delhi-110012 India 2Division of Fruit Crops ICAR-Indian Institute of Horticultural Research Bengaluru-560089 India 3Department of Fruit Science Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwa vidyalaya Raipur-492001 India Corresponding author ABSTRACT Keywords Antioxidant CUPRAC Flavonoids Anthocyanins Phenolics Hybrid bioactives Article Info Accepted 18 January 2019 Available Online 10 February 2019 The potential of antioxidants in our diet has attained the major focus now-a-days.

Introduction Grape Vitis vinifera L. is one of the most nutritious fruit crop having beneficial effects on human health and also gives higher returns per unit area when grown on commercial scale are widely grown and eaten around the world. Now-a-days there are three main species of grapes European grapes Vitis vinifera North American grapes Vitis labrusca and Vitisrotundifolia and French hybrids.
