Abstract:

The extracts obtained from two types of berries: red currant and raspberries, were evaluated for their phenolic content. They were identified and quantified by using an optimized HPLC method. During the analyze several phenolic compounds were found, like: gallic acid, (+)- catechin, syringic acid, cinnamic acid, chlorogenic acid, ferulic acid, rutin and quercetin. The total amount of phenolic compounds analyzed found in red currant was greater than the one found in raspberries, due to the low variety of phenolic compounds extracted. The greatest amount of gallic acid, (+)- catechin, syringic acid, cinnamic acid, chlorogenic acid, ferulic acid and rutin was determined from the extraction of red currant berries and the raspberries extract contained the greatest source of quercetin. This study shows that red currant can provide the highest and most varied content of phenolic compounds from the analyzed berries.
