The purpose of this study was to compare the amount and activity of phytonutrients in grilled, raw, and boiled eggplant fruit using chemical measures and a biological assay of oxidative bursts in human neutrophils. The thermally treated samples showed various changes in their chemical composition (dry matter, soluble solids, acidity, and the amount of alcohol insoluble substances) due to the cooking processes and were much richer in the main phenolic compounds such as chlorogenic and caffeic acids, which are known to be antioxidants. Consequently, their free radical scavenging activity was significantly higher, especially that of super-oxide anion. Our results show that the thermal treatment commonly used before consumption can increase the content and biological activity of antioxidant compounds of eggplants.
