TINGKAT PENERIMAAN KONSUMEN TERHADAP TEH DAUN BINAHONG (Anredera cordifolia (Ten.) Steenis) PADA VARIASI SUHU DAN WAKTU PENYEDUHAN
AbstractAntioxidants are compounds that can counteract the negative
effects of free radicals in the body. Binahong leaves (Anredera cordifolia
(Ten.) Steenis) contain steroids, alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins,
polyphenols and tannins which can potentially have antioxidant capacity.
Binahong leaf tea is an herbal tea produced from fresh binahong leaves
which has antioxidant content. The purpose of this study was to determine
the antioxidant activity at the varied immertion temperature. This study
used a descriptive method at variations in immertion temperatures of
60â°C, 80â°C and 100â°C for 5 minutes. Antioxidant activity test was carried
out on DPPH, total flavonoids and total Phenol. The highest DPPH
scavenging activity obtained at 100â°C was 62.15% with total flavonoids
and total phenolic were 120 mg / 100g and 327.75 mg / 100g, respectively.
