Antioxidant activity of methanol extracts of two common legumes, Vigna radiata (Green gram) and Macrotyloma uniflorum (Horse gram) for their seeds and sprouts was investigated by adopting various in vitro models such as reducing power assay, DPPH assay, total phenolic assay and total antioxidant assays. The results showed higher antioxidant abilities in the sprouts than their seeds for the various antioxidant tests performed. Sprouts described above are being used in traditional diet as a beneficial source of food with very high nutritional value and support the concept of functional foods and the results are discussed.
