Main Article Content
Lyophilized aqueous extracts of sugarcane juice (SJ), vacuum pan jaggery (VJ), and open pan jaggery (OJ) were estimated for their Physico-chemical properties, phytochemical constituents, and biological activity against certain clinical isolates. The phytochemical results of flavonoid and tannin content indicated high significance in the mean values of the VJ sample whereas, phenol and terpenoid content was significantly higher in the OJ sample. For antioxidant activity, the mean values of IC50 of DPPH assay and ABTS assay showed a highly significant increase for OJ, which were 2.810 and 2.441% respectively. All the aqueous extract showed a zone of inhibition against tested organism extract except Salmonella typhi. Bacillus subtilis, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The results indicate that the Lyophilized SJ, VJ and OJ have phytochemical components that can have other clinical and medicinal properties that use these products not only as a food additive but as pharmaceutical additives. Worth a mention that our study constitutes the first research to evaluate vacuum evaporated jaggery product as a potential antioxidant resource to investigate by in vitro trials in cellular systems.
