Antioxidant activity in extracts from green and fully ripe tomato fruits and pomace from industrial tomato processing. Values are presented as mean ± S.E.M  ( ) which with different letters are significantly different at . DPPH free radical scavenging activity was calculated as percentage of DPPH discoloration in 1000 μg/mL of dried extract, catechin (  µg/mL), and quercetin (  µg/mL) showed a discoloration of 50%. Trolox (  µg/mL) presents  µmol Fe+2/g. PE seeds: petroleum ether extract of seeds.
