Abstract

The antioxidant activities and the contents of total soluble phenolics, flavonoids, anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins were studied in wild and cultivated lingonberries (Vaccinium vitis-idaea L.). The antioxidant properties of wild clones were much higher than those of the cultivars. The levels of antioxidant compounds were positively correlated with latitude, altitude, reduced temperature and increased precipitation of the collected sites.
