Abstract: The identification and quantification of phenolic compounds in bananas from Gran Canaria were carried out to examine changes in their profile during maturation. The phenolic composition of extracts derived from bananas was determined by using HPLC. The total phenolic contents were measured with Folin–Cicolteau`s phenol reagent. To quantify the total antioxidant capacity of banana extracts, we chose two methods commonly used: the percentage of inhibition of radical 1,1–diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and the ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP assay). The antioxidant potential on banana extracts was found to increase during maturation in correlation whit the total phenol content.
