The aim of this project is determine in food the scavenging capacities for the ROS superoxide radical (O2*-), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), peroxyl radicals (ROO*), hypochlorous acid (HOCl), singlet oxygen (1O2) and the RNS nitric oxide (*NO) and peroxynitrite (ONOO-) in order to understand their antioxidant capacities.
