|Analysis of Food-based Antioxidants|
|Capers are one of the most abundant food sources of kaempferol (135 mg/100g) and quercetin (180 mg/100g), flavanol antioxidants. But normally, only a small portion of capers is eaten at a sitting.||Mustard is a good source of glucosinlolates (mainly glucosinalbin) and hence their degradation products, the isothiocyanates, some of which have anticancer properties, and nitriles.|
| Top food sources of named antioxidants |
|Apigenin||Flavone|| Fresh parsley
|Epicatechin||Flavan-3-ol|| Chocolate bar (black)
Again, it is necessary to point out the portion size of some of the foods listed as rich sources of individual antioxidants. Usually, only small amounts of the herbs are consumed at a sitting. However, it is useful to know e.g., that elderberries are a very rich source of cyanidin.
