Rubus idaeus - Wild Raspberry
Determination of flavonoids,
tannins and ellagic acid in leaves from Rubus L. species.
This paper describes the quantitative
determination of flavonoids, tannins and ellagic acid in the leaves from wild and
cultivated variations of Rubus L. species (Rosaceae): raspberry (2 wild and 13 cultivars)
and blackberry (3 wild and 3 cultivars). The results from this study indicate that the
analyzed species are a rich source of flavonoids, ellagic acid and tannins, which may be
used for the quality assessment of Rubus L. species leaves.
