ABSTRACT
Roasted sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, soy beans, and wheat germs were obtained from Ekoprodukt company (Częstochowa, Poland). Phenolic compounds were extracted with 80% aqueous methanol. The extract of roasted sunflower seeds was characterised by a higher content of total phenolics (158 mg/g). The Total Antioxidant Capacity was the highest in the extract of roasted sunflower seeds (0.478 mmol Trolox/g) followed by the extract of roasted wheat germs (0.066 mmol Trolox/g). The extracts of roasted sunflower seeds and wheat germs were strong scavengers of DPPH radical. Their reducing power was strong as well.
