Evaluation of carbohydrate and phenol content of citrus fruits species
Carbohydrate content (Nutritional) and Phenol content (Anti-nutritional) of six varieties of citrus fruit species: Sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), Lemon (Citrus limonum), Mosambi (Citrus limetta), Pomelo (C. maxima), wild orange (Citrus aurantium) and mini orange (C. microcarpa) were analysed in this study. The results of the analysis revealed the presence of carbohydrate and phenol contents. Carbohydrate contents were found to be higher in Citrus maxima with the range of 3.690±0.705. In Citrus sinensis and Citrus limonum, carbohydrate content is low (2.983±0.0026 and 3.073±0.001) when compared with other citrus fruits. The total phenol content was higher in Citrus sinensis with the range of 1.3036±0.0031.Carbohydrate and Phenols have been responsible for the biological, antioxidant activities.
