The purpose of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant activity of roasted and germinated peanut flours. This study also aims to utilize it as a functional material to be applied to processed foods. The moisture, crude protein, crude fat and ash carbohydrate contents of the common peanut powder used in this study were 1.27, 25.63, 42.19, 2.38, 28.20 g / 100 g, respectively. The moisture content, crude protein, crude fat and ash carbohydrate in germinated peanut powder were 1.47, 25.86, 42.86, 2.25 and 26.66 g / 100 g, respectively. 26.52, 45.02, 2.33, 24.70, g / 100 g, and the dietary fiber content of peanut, roasted peanut and germinated peanut powder was 12.27, 13.05 and 14.22 g / 100g, respectively. The antioxidants and radical scavenging ability of polyphenols and flavonoids in peanut powder treated with germination and germination compared to ordinary peanuts. Resverasterol content was high in the germinated peanut powder. Especially, germinated peanut powder can act as a natural antioxidant.
