Abstract

Nowadays increasing attention has been focused on polyphenolic compounds as the main representants of antioxidants in horticultural crops including fruits. The edible honeysuckle has an unique position among lesser known fruits due to its high level of antioxidants. In the present study we determined polyphenolic profile and antioxidant capacity of four Russian cultivars of edible honeysuckle including ‘Gerda 25’, ‘Amfora’, ‘Morena’, ‘Lipnicka’, which found together in a single location in Mendel University in Brno, The Czech Republic. Polyphenolic compounds were detected by high performance liquid chromatography coupled with electrochemical detector (HPLC-ED). The antioxidant capacity was measured by DPPH test. According to the results there were differences among cultivars in terms of polyphenolic content and antioxidant activity and Lonicera kamtschatica ‘Gerda 25’ were found to be possessed the highest content of phenolic compounds corresponding to the highest value of antioxidant activity.

Zusammenfassung

Derzeit wird Polyphenolen als Hauptvertreter der Antioxidanzien in Kulturpflanzen, inklusive Früchten, gesteigerte Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt. Die essbare Heckenkirsche sticht unter den weniger bekannten Früchten aufgrund ihres hohen Antioxidanziengehaltes besonders hervor. In der vorliegenden Studie haben wir die Polyphenolprofile und antioxidative Kapazität von vier Sorten der Kamtschatka-Heckenkirsche untersucht – ‘Gerda 25’, ‘Amfora’, ‘Morena’, ‘Lipnicka’ – die alle an einem Ort, der Mendel-Universität Brünn in der Tschechischen Republik, zusammengetragen wurden. Polyphenole wurden durch eine Hochleistungsflüssigkeitschromatographie mit elektrochemischem Detektor (HPLC-ED) erfasst. Die antioxidative Kapazität wurde mittels eines DPPH-Tests gemessen. Den Ergebnissen zufolge gibt es zwischen den vier Sorten der Kamtschatka-Heckenkirsche Unterschiede im Polyphenolgehalt und in der Antioxidanzien-Aktivität. In der Sorte Lonicera kamtschatica ‘Gerda 25’ wurde der höchste Polyphenol-Gehalt und dementsprechend die höchste Antioxidanzien-Aktivität gemessen.
