  • Abstract

    Preliminary phytochemical screening, total polyphenol content, total flavonoid content and antioxidant activity of the extracts from banana flower (Musa paradisiaca AAB Nendran variety) were studied. Six different extracts using water, ethanol, methanol, chloroform, ethyl acetate and acetone were prepared by maceration process and evaporated using rotary evaporator. Total Polyphenol Content (TPC) and Total Flavonoid Content (TFC) in the extracts were determined by UV visible spectrophotomery and antioxidant activity was measured by in vitro DPPH assay method. The results showed that ethanol extract having more amount of flavonoid (0.67%) and polyphenol content (1.92 mg Eq of GA) than other extracts. In addition, the ethanol extract exhibited more antioxidant activity with IC50value 63 µg/ml. This study indicated that ethanol extract of banana flower (Musa paradisiaca AAB Nendran variety) exhibited more antioxidant property due to the presence of high content of polyphenols and flavonoids.
