Subject/sCatechin Epicatechin Grape pomace Cyclodextrin
The capacity of cyclodextrins (CDs) to extract phenolic compounds from grape pomace was evaluated and compared with that of ethanol/water or aqueous extraction. The extraction method (stirring and ultrasound), temperature and time were also studied. Total phenolic compounds (TPC) and antioxidant activity were measured, and HPLC analysis was used to identify the phenolic compounds. The extracts obtained using the ethanol/water mixture presented the highest TPC content and antioxidant activity, followed by those obtained using CD solutions. The addition of CDs to the extractant agent had a selective effect on the extraction of catechin and epicatechin. The yield of catechin and epicatechin by using aqueous solutions of CDs was similar to that obtained using organic solvents as ethanol.
