turmeric, turmeric capsules, curcuminoid, spectroscopic techniques


The purpose of this research was to study the curcuminoid content from crude extracts and determination of curcuminoids from turmeric capsules.Chemical composition of turmeric contains curcuminoids, it is a yellow substance extracted from turmeric rhizomes. Determination of curcuminoids by spectroscopic techniques. Crude extract from methanol, curcuminoid content was the highest at 62.51%, followed by acetone crude extract at 43.56% and dichloromethane at 39.24%, respectively whereas the study of curcuminoids from 3 brands of turmeric capsules found that Langkasuka brand, the amount of curcuminoids was the highest at 11.50%, followed by Abhaibhubejhr brand, 10.39%, and Ouay-An-Osoth brand, 9.71 %, respectively.
