Plant‐derived antioxidants are molecules which donate electrons or hydrogen atoms. These compounds are able to form less reactive antioxidant‐derived radicals, which are efficiently quenched by other electron or hydrogen sources to prevent cellular damage. Therefore, they help to delay and inhibit lipid oxidation, protect human cells against oxidative damage, leading to a reduced risk of several oxidative stress associated degenerative diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular, or neurodegenerative diseases [1] and when added to foods tend to minimize rancidity, retard the formation of toxic oxidation products, help to maintain the nutritional quality and increase their shelf life [2].
