Objective: To evaluate the polyphenol content and antioxidant capacity of ethanol some organically and conventionally grown leafy vegetables. extracts of Methods: The ethanol extracts of kailan (Brassica alboglabra), bayam (Amaranthus spp.) and sawi (Brassica parachinensis) were tested for total phenolic content (TPC), total flavonoid content (uTsFiCn)g, and total anthocyanin content (TAC) and the antioxidant capacity of the extracts measured 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl assay. Results: In TPC test, sawi extract showed the highest phenolic content while bayam contained tohrgea lneiacsatl lpyh gernoowlnic scaownit eenxtt rafocrt bshoothw eodrg tahnei chailglhy easnt dfl acvoonnvoeindt icoonnatlelny t,g rwohwinle toyrpgeasn. iIcna lTlyF Cg rtoewstn, ckoaniltaenn te xotfr athcet schoonwveedn titohnea llelya sgt rfolwavno ntyopide sc oonf tveengte atambolen ge xatlrl atcytpse ws aosf tvheeg ehtiagbhleesst.
