ANIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES OF SULFATED POLYSACCHARIDE OBTAINED FROM RED ALGAE CORALLINA OFICINALISAbstract
Sulfated polysaccharides (SP) were extracted from Corallina officinalis marine red algae seaweed by using hydrothermal processes at 100 °C. The antioxidant activity of C. officinalis sulfated polysaccharide was determined using the (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl, DPPH) method, showing that this polysaccharide has a moderate effect in inhibiting the formation of those radicals. This study demonstrates that sulfated polysaccharide obtained from marine red algae have the potential for use as natural antioxidants in industrial food applications.
