AbstractThe aim of the study was to evaluate the antioxidant activity of Chinese boxthorn fruit (goji) and bilberry digestion products. It has been shown that the simulated digestion in the stomach has no significant impact on the compounds of antioxidant nature. Bilberry fruit had significantly higher antioxidant activity of the insoluble fraction of polyphenols when compared with goji fruit. Goji berries were characterized by a high migration rate of polyphenolic compounds through the dialysis membrane. The intestinal microflora had a significant influence on the release of antioxidant components from fruit.
