Resumen

OTERO, Deborah et al. Bioactive compounds in fruits from different regions of Brazil. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2020, vol.47, n.1, pp.31-40. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182020000100031.

It is important to determine the chemical composition of fruits in order to establish their potential health benefits for human nutrition and thus stimulate their cultivation and consumption. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the physical and chemical parameters, vitamin C content, phenolic compounds, flavonoids and carotenoids, fatty acid profile and antioxidant activity of fruits from different regions of Brazil. We observed that the different regions and fruits studied presented very distinct characteristics. For example, the cupuaçu pit is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, while the genipap and java plum presented high flavonoid content and the butia had a high concentration of carotenoids. Guava was the fruit with the highest antioxidant activity through the ABTS radical, while the yellow mombim presented the best response when the activity was determined by FRAP.

Palabras clave : Antioxidant activity; Brazilian fruits; Fatty acid; Functional properties; Phenolic compounds.
