  • The antioxidant activity of methanol extracts from five different parts (flesh, peel, core, seed, calyx) of Jangseong Daebong persimmon (Diospyros kaki cv. Hachiya) were evaluated by determining total phenol content (TPC), DPPH radical scavenging activity (RSA), ABTS RSA, and reducing power (RP). The flesh extract gave the highest yield (92.93%) while the lowest yield was obtained from the seed (5.17%). The seed extract showed the highest total phenolic content ($76.47\pm0.009$ mg GAE/g extract), DPPH RSA ($IC_{50}=52.05\pm1.61\;{\mu}g/mL$), ABTS RSA ($IC_{50}=30.94\pm0.41\;{\mu}g/mL$) and RP ($IC_{50}=87.94\pm0.37\;{\mu}g/mL$). In addition, the calyx extract also showed high antioxidant activity. On the other hand, the core extract gave the lowest TPC and all antioxidant assays. In particular, HT-29 cells showed extensive cell death when treated with $500\;{\mu}g/mL$ of calyx extracts. Thus, these results suggest that methanolic extracts of Jangseong Daebong persimmon seed and calyx may serve as a potential source of natural antioxidant for food and nutraceutical application.

  • To evaluate utilization of persimmon peels as novel bio-materials, the general composition and antioxidant activities of Daebong persimmon vinegar (DPV), Daebong persimmon peel vinegar (DPPV) and commercial persimmon vinegar (CPV) were investigated. The pH of DPPV had slightly higher than that of other vinegars. The titratable acidities of vinegars were 3.24% (DPV), 2.77% (DPPV) and 7.78% (CPV), respectively. The reducing sugar contents showed that DPV had slightly higher than that of other vinegars. The browning degree of DPV was lower than CPV in contrast to the turbidity. The results of Hunter's color value have showed that overall values of CPV had significantly higher than DPPV and DPV. The total phenolic contents of DPV and CPV were 19.49 and 17.13 mg/100g GAE, respectively. The total flavonoid contents of DPPV (8.04 mg/100g CE) were two fold higher than that of DPV (3.85 mg/100g CE). The antioxidant activities, by DPPH and FRAP assays, of DPV showed stronger than those of other vinegars. Free sugars were mainly composed of fructose and glucose. Organic acids were presented in the order acetic acid, succinic acid, malic acid, tartaric acid, citric acid and oxalic acid. These results suggest that the Daebong persimmon peels could be utilized for vinegar production as a health-benefit material.
