Abstract: The effect of medium doses of γ-irradiation (1-10 kGy) on total phenolic andtannin contents, lipid peroxidation, protein oxidation intensity and soluble protein contentof soybean seeds, (genotype Ana), was investigated. Screening for antioxidant ability wasperformed using FRAP and DPPH methods. Total phenolic and tannin contents and DPPHscavenger activity were increased, while protein oxidation intensity was decreased byapplied doses of γ-irradiation. Gamma irradiation provoked insignificant changes in lipidperoxidation and soluble protein content, while protein oxidation intensity wassignificantly decreased when dose of 10 kGy was applied. Presented results implicated thatincreased antioxidant capacity and protein stability of soybean seeds were increased afterapplication of γ-irradiation.
Keywords: Phenols; protein oxidation; DPPH; γ-irradiation; soybean seeds
