Abstract

This work investigates the effect of the addition of 0.2% lemon balm extract on the quality of an apple-Chaenomeles Japonica beverage. Adding of lemon balm to the beverage resulted in a substantial 99% increase in total polyphenols and a rise in antioxidant activity measured against ABTS* cation radical of 83%, against DPPH* free radical of 50% and when determined by a FRAP method by 53%.. Beverages with the addition of lemon balm were characterized by better sensory quality, being slightly darker and greener in colour.
