Bee Pollen Antioxidant Activity Not Associated with Phenolic Content

In Vitro Antioxidant Capacity of Honeybee-Collected Pollen of Selected Floral Origin Harvested from Romania
Food Chemistry, Article in Press

Total phenolic phytochemical concentration was measured in 12 honeybee-collected pollens of selected floral species as well as their antioxidant capacity…

A great variability regarding the correspondence between the antioxidant activity and the content of total polyphenols of honeybee-collected pollens with different botanical origin was found.

Antioxidant activities were different for each floral species and were not clearly associated to their total phenolic content.
