Figure 5

Rates of ascorbate consumption seen with aqueous and organic extracts of dung cake (DC) particle extracts. All data represent the mean (SD) of three separate experiments. '*' Indicates that the rate of AA depletion seen with the complete, aqueous and organic dung cake extracts was significantly greater (P < 0.05) than that observed in the particle free control; 'a' that the activity of the aqueous and organic extracts were significantly less than the complete extract; and, 'b' that the rate of AA depletion by the organic extract, with or without DTPA, was less than that seen with the aqueous fraction.
