ABSTRACT Recently, the recycling of food-waste to produce a green substance has been interested subject in the world. Ellagic acid is one of the major antioxidants in different medicinal plants including pomegranate. The peel of pomegranate that considered as waste may cause some problems in the environment, so this research comes to evaluating the level of ellagic acid in pomegranate by using more different extraction methods (stirring extraction and ultrasonic extraction) with different solvents (99% methanol, 50 % v/v water in methanol, 10 % v/v water in methanol) and comparing the results with standard extract obtained by soxhlet extraction reported in previous articles to recycling this peel. Results revealed that the highest percentage of ellagic acid was yielded when pomegranate peel extracted with dDW at 60 °C and achieved 81.38% extraction of ellagic acid. This may lead to a conclusion that this method is simple, cheap and with high yield value.
