Default Capers - A Source of Antioxidants

Extracts from capers were found to have significant antioxidant effects comparable to vitamin E, said the researchers in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

Three and a half micromoles of gallic acid equivalents (GAE) of caper extract produced the same antioxidant effect as five micromoles GAE of vitamin E, reported the researchers from the University of Palermo.


"By inhibiting the accumulation of harmful lipid oxidation products and increasing the level of bioavailable vitamin E, caper may have beneficial health effects, especially for people whose meals are rich in fats and red meats," they concluded.
