Abstract

Spices are a promising source of bioactive compounds since it has been traditionally used for the treatment of various diseases. The present study was aimed at evaluating the phytochemical constituents of different spices extracts by qualitative phytochemical analysis, GC-MS and ATR. The results showed that the used (distilled water) solvent took an important role in the extraction of phytochemical components. Aqueous extract was identified as the most effective solvent for the extraction, resulting in the highest content of polyphenolic compounds in all the spices.
