In this study, the anti-lipid peroxidative, metal chelating and radical scavenging properties of the various extracts from fruit parts of Prangos meliocarpoides Boiss var. meliocarpoides were analyzed. Moreover, chlorogenic acid/rutin profiles and total phenolic/carotenoid contents of the extracts were determined. The water extract exhibited the highest plasma lipid peroxidation inhibitory (45.3 +/- 1.1 % at 2 mg/mL) and beta-carotene bleaching (83.4 +/- 0.2 % at 2 mg/mL) effects. According to HPLC analysis, the highest rutin (3.17 +/- 0.06 mu g/mg) and chlorogenic acid (2.97 +/- 0.22 mu g/mg) contents were determined in the methanol extract. The results suggest that the active extracts of Prangos meliocarpoides var. meliocarpoides may serve as a potential source of natural antioxidants for food industry.
