In this study, Genista species growing in Turkey were analysed for their total and free genistein content by using LC-MS method. The highest amount of total and free genistein was found in Genista tinctoria as 1.05% and 0.27% respectively and trace amount in G. libanotica. Total and free genistein content of the aerial parts of other Genista species varied from 0.01 to 0.18% and from 0.01 to 0.13% respectively.
