The antioxidant activity was stronger in the purple-skinned O. lindheimeri, compared to other varieties owing to the higher total flavonoid content. Ndhlala et al. (2007) assessed the phenolic acid composition of the peel and pulp of the fruits of O. ) Mill and found ferulic acid, caffeic acid and vanillic acid to be the dominant antioxidants. Liu et al. (2009) analyzed the fatty acid makeup of supercritical carbon dioxideextracted seed oil from O. 65 %). Assessment of the seed oil by 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical-scavenging assay and β-carotene bleaching test showed strong antioxidant activity comparable to ascorbic acid and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT).
