Total phenolic content of crude extracts of the quinoa leaves.

Sample Total phenolic content (mg GAE/g extract)
WQL 340.4 ± 26.6a
50% EQL 413.6 ± 72.6ab
95% EQL 569.5 ± 69.5b

WQL = water extract of quinoa leaves; 50% EQL = 50% ethanolic extract of quinoa leaves; 95% EQL = 95% ethanolic extract of quinoa leaves;

GAE = gallic acid equivalent. Mean values followed by different superscripts are significantly different (p < 0.05).
