Abstract: A comparative analysis of ethanol extracts from peel, pulp and seed of Prunus persica var. platycarpa (Tabacchiera peach) was done. The total phenols, flavonoids and carotenoids content as well as the antioxidant properties were evaluated. Peach pulp extract was characterized by the highest total phytonutrients content and exhibited the highest antioxidant activity in all in vitro assays. Interestingly, pulp extract showed IC50 values of 2.7 and 2.2 g/mL at 30 and 60 minutes of incubation, respectively using -carotene bleaching test. A remarkable result was also obtained by using Fe-chelating assay (IC50 of 2.9 g/mL vs 1.3 g/mL for positive control BHT). Pulp extract was subjected to liquid chromatography-electrospray-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESI-MS/MS). Six main compounds, namely gallic acid, protocatechuic acid, protocatechualdehyde, chlorogenic acid, p-coumaric acid, and ferulic acid, were identified. Overall, the results suggest that Prunus persica var. platycarpa displays a good antioxidant activity and its consumption could be promoted
