ABSTRACT
The white and black varieties of Sesamum indicum were extracted in ethanol and the extracts were assayed for their antioxidant activities. The study revealed that both the extracts showed antioxidant activity. Respect to its abilility in inhibiting the lipid peroxidation. The hydroxyl radical scavenging by the white sesame extract was found to be more than that of black sesame. The white sesame seed extract was markedly a more potent scavenger of superoxide anion than the black one. The reducing power of the seed extracts was in substantiation with the antioxidant property. Fe++ chelation by the extracts was found to be high. It is concluded that the sesame seed extracts possess high antioxidant activity and that the white variety elicit better antioxidant activity than the black one.
