Abstract—This study was to examine the antioxidant potential of Morindacitrifolia L. and Beta vulgaris L. fruits and its synergistic effect. The bioactive components of these fruits were extracted and then microencapsulated by spray drying technique. The antioxidant activities of these fruits were analyzed, before and after the spray drying process through DPPH radical scavenging activity, total phenolic content and total flavonoid content. The encapsulation yield of the spray drying process was also quantified. Among the spray drying samples encapsulation yield was found maximum 8 % for the mixed fruit extract. Similarly, synergistic effect between the two fruits showed the highest antioxidant activity of 30% and the individual fruit extract also exhibited significant antioxidant activity.

Index Terms—Antioxidant potential, Morindacitrifolia L.,Beta vulgaris L., DPPH radical scavenging activity.
