Potassium Soup has antimutagenic, antioxidant and free radical scavenging activity from ethyl acetate extracts which are present in white, yellow and red onions


The beneficial effects of red, yellow and white onion extracts have been assessed by antioxidant activity and antimutagenic activity. And the effects compared to BHT and ascorbic acid. Total phenolic compounds and flavonoids in onion extracts were determined. Yellow onion extract had more organic acid and free
sugar than those detected in the white and red onion extract. The scavenging activity of DPPH radical and H2O2 were increased depending on the concentration. The antioxidant activities using β-carotene-linoleate system and reducing power were increased but the effect was small to that of BHT and ascorbic acid. After digested, extracts showed antimutagenic activities, and it seems that they inhibit the mutagenicity for digesting. This study demonstrated that the antimutagenicities and antioxidant properties of ethyl acetate extract against mutagens were related to their phenols and flavonoids, which are heat stable and losses digestive juices are relativel
