The Antioxidant and Antibacterial Activity of Oriental Strawberry (Arbutus andrachne L.): A Review Article
Oxidation is one of the most critical processes in food systems. It has an impact on a variety of dietary ingredient interactions, resulting in both desired and unwanted results. It was found in many studies that high concentrations of synthetic antioxidants may havesome carcinogenic effects in some animals, thus natural antioxidants would be analternative to synthetic antioxidants in food. These natural antioxidants can be present in any plant part, including grains, fruits, leaves, nuts, seeds, roots and barks. Many studies showed that there is an inverse relationship between the dietary intake of medicinal plants rich in antioxidants and the prevalence of human diseases. Oriental strawberry (Arbutus andrachne L.) is one of many medicinal plants for which antibacterial and antioxidant activity have been widely documented for a long time. This review intends to discuss the use of Arbutus andrachne L. as antibacterial and antioxidant.
