In this work, phenolic composition, antioxidant and antibacterial activities of selected Tunisian barley varieties were studied. Swihli barley exhibited the highest total phenolic content and the strongest antioxidant and antibacterial activities. Liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry analysis revealed significant qualitative and quantitative differences in phenolic composition among the different varieties. Procyanidin B3 and catechin were the most abundant. Pearson’s correlation test revealed significant correlations between the antioxidant activities of barley extracts and both hydroferuloyl glucose and catechin-3-glucose.

Abstract

In this work, phenolic composition, antioxidant and antibacterial activities of selected Tunisian barley varieties were studied. Swihli barley exhibited the highest total phenolic content and the strongest antioxidant and antibacterial activities. Liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry analysis revealed significant qualitative and quantitative differences in phenolic composition among the different varieties. Procyanidin B3 and catechin were the most abundant. Pearson’s correlation test revealed significant correlations between the antioxidant activities of barley extracts and both hydroferuloyl glucose and catechin-3-glucose.
