Synapis alba commonly known as White Mustard belongs to the family Cruciferaceae. These plants are indigenous to Europe, flowering occurs from June to August. White mustard seen is about 2mm in diameter, globular, testa yellowish, finely pitted, hard, embryo oily. The present work has been carried out to evaluate and extract the potent protein and phenolic antioxidant of aqueous extract of Synapis alba. The potent protein and phenolic content of Synapis alba were investigated spectrophotometrically by using Folin-ciocalteau reagent and the antioxidant activity was determined using ferric reducing power assay. The presence of phenolics was also detected by TLC. Statistical data exhibited a positive correlation of phenolic to the antioxidant activity which was significant and comparable to the standard antioxidant ascorbic acid. The results of the present work suggest that the seeds of Synapis alba possess potent antioxidant property which is a good source of natural antioxidant which can be used for a potent antioxidant drug. Keywords: Antioxidant, Phenolic, Synapis alba, Ascorbic acid.
