Onion bulbs (Allium cepa L.) have the highest allicin and the shallot bulbs (Allium cepa L. Aggregatum) have the highest quercetin content. Seven formulation (AQ1, AQ2, AQ3, RF1, RF2, RF3, RF4) with design different ratio of frozen lyophilized powder from onions and shallots and six commercial garlic products were compared on DPPH Radical Scavenging Activity, Ferrous ion chelating effect and anti-bacteria activity.
Formulation AQ1, AQ2, and AQ3 have high allicin content that all the commercial garlic products compared. AQ2 formulation has the highest content of quercetin (33.8 μg/cap), and no quercetin was detected in all the commercial products tested. In DPPH Radical scavenging activity, the AQ1, AQ2, AQ3 were all above 90%. In Ferrous ion chelating effect, AQ1 and AQ3 formulation were approached to 50%, and RF3 and RF4 formulation are even higher than 70%. In anti-bacterial activities, AQ1, AQ2, and AQ3 inhibited the growth of Staphylococcus aureus subsp. Aureus Rosenbach (ATTC 6538P) and MRSA (methicillin- resistant Staphylococcus aureus (ATTC 33591).
