4 - Comparison of polyphenol content, pro- and antioxidant activity and mutagenicity of lettuce and spinaches between organic and conventional crops
F. Fratianni - D. Gallotta - M.A. Belisario - A. Leone - A. Sada - F. Nazzaro

Organically and conventionally grown spinaches and lettuce were compared in terms of some biochemical and biological aspects. Total polyphenols were, similar, thus independent from type of agricultural practise. More differences were observed for the antioxidant activity (DPPH method), resulting higher in organic spinaches than in the conventional ones. Ames test did not reveal mutagenicity in the conventional products; a more evident antimutagen activity was recorded in the organic ones (until 80% inhibitory activity). The pro-oxidant and anti-oxidant activity, performed using normal and tumoral human cell lines did not indicate evident differences among organic and conventional products.
