Abstract:

The phytochemical activity of Cichorium intybus (chicory) was investigated through the analysis of methanolic and aqueous leaf and root extracts. Fresh chicory was collected, and leaves and roots were processed for extraction using methanol and water. The extracts were analyzed for Total Phenolic Content, Total Flavonoid Content, and Total Flavanol Content. Methanol extracts showed higher total phenolic content, total flavonoid content, and total flavanol content compared to aqueous extracts. Methanol leaf extract exhibited the highest total phenolic content (116.62±3.53 mg GAE/g extract) and total flavanol content (75.44±0.33 mg QE/g extract). This research highlights the complex and promising phytochemical profile of chicory, paving the way for further exploration and applications in pharmaceuticals and nutrition.
