    Abstract

    Wholemeal rye products have an important role in daily finnish diet as a source of dietary fiber.In addition to dietary fiber, rye products contain a wide range of nutrient and non-nutrient phytochemicals.These non-nutrient substances include phenolic compounds known to be capable of effective antioxidant action.In this study, different rye varieties and selected rye products were screened for their ability to act as antioxidant by scavenging the nitrogen-centered free radical DPPH· (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) widely used in radical-based antioxidant assays.
