Antioxidant Properties of Hot Water Extracts from Armillaria Mellea and Hohenbuehelia Serotina
Hot water extracts from Armillaria mellea and Hohenbuehelia serotina fruit bodies were prepared and investigated for their antioxidant capacity in three different assays, namely, 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activity, reducing power and chelating ability on ferrous ions. Among the two mushrooms hot water extracts, extract from A. mellea was better than that from H. serotina in scavenging ability and chelating effect on ferrous ions. With regard to reducing power, EC50 value of extracts from H. serotina was 0.447 mg/mL, while that of extracts from A. mellea was 1.914. From EC50 values obtained, it can be concluded that hot water extracts from A. mellea and H. serotina were good in antioxidant properties.
