Abstract


In current research the scrutiny of antioxidant potential was carried out. The sunflower seeds provide a good source of antioxidant potential. Different treatments of mutagenic substance, namely EMS, was given to the SF seeds and antioxidant potential along with other biochemical components was inquired. The total antioxidant’s activity was increased at 0.1%. The reducing power of seeds was elevated after the treatments of 0.5% and 0.2% as compared to the controls, where as the total phenolic and flavonoids contents were decreased after the treatments of 0.2% and 0.3% respectively. The total reducing sugar and total protein contents were boosted after the treatment at 0.3% and 0.1% respectively, where as total sugars were reduced.
