Garlic extract is made by maceration using ethanol 96% and antioxidant activity test using DPPH method (1,1-diphenyl-2- picrylhydrazyl). Statistical analysis using One Way ANOVA followed by post hoc analysis
Result: three varieties of garlic have a strong antioxidant activity. Value of IC50 = 13.61 mg / ml for local garlic varieties Ciwidey, IC50 = 10.61 mg/ml for single local garlic’s clove and IC50 = 11.32 mg/ml for imports garlic.
