  • Abstract

    The antioxidant activity of the peel and pulp of pear was compared in this work. In DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydroxyl) assay the methanol extract of peel showed 75.20% activity which was much higher than pulp extract which was 52.38%. And in reducing assay peel extract showed 0.612 while the pulp extract showed 0.568 activities. Thus, the result indicated that pear peel exhibited higher antioxidant activity than pulp so it was concluded that the pear fruit has a viable source of natural antioxidants for the functional food and in medicinal application also.
