In this study, we aimed to determine biochemical contents of white (Morus alba L.) and
black (Morus nigra L.) mulberry genotypes grown in the Hakkari region. At the end of the
study, organic acids, phenolic compounds, sugars, vitamin C and antioxidant capacities
of mulberry species were determined. Black mulberry genotypes were found to contain
higher antioxidant capacity than white mulberry genotypes. The highest antioxidant
capacity was detected in the 30YK03 (25.55 μmolTE/g) black mulberry genotype. While
phenolic compounds varied in mulberry species, especially gallic acid (57.78 mg/100g),
chlorogenic acid (53.13 mg/100g), and rutin (37.77 mg/100g) had the highest values.
Malic acid was found to be higher than other organic acids and was found to be 13.51
g/100g in the highest 30HK03 genotype. Although sugar contents varied in mulberry
species, glucose was determined higher than fructose and sucrose in mulberries.
