The aim of the graduation thesis was to determine the content of the total phenolic compounds in the non-germinated and germinated camelina seed (Camelina sativa L.). We were interested in differences in the concentration of phenolic compounds in non-germinated and germinated seeds and in changes of concentration of phenolic compounds during germination (24 hours, 48 hours, 72 hours and 96 hours). Phenolic compounds protect food from oxidation, prolong shelf life, and also protect people from various chronic diseases. A food with a high content of phenolic compounds thus represents a healthier way of eating. The dry matter in the seeds was determined by drying the sample at 105 °C for 5 hours and determining the difference in mass before and after drying. The dry matter began to decrease with a longer time of germination, which coincides with the absorption of water into the seed. The extracts of camelina were prepared by extraction in methanol by shaking. Subsequently, the content of phenolic compounds was determined by the Folin-Ciocalteu method. To facilitate sample comparison, the total content of phenolic compounds was given as the equivalent of chlorogenic acid per 1g of the dry sample (mg KK/g DW). The content of the total phenolic compounds was much higher in germinated seeds than in non-germinated ones. We also observed the growth of total phenolic compounds throughout germination. For this reason, seed germination may present a more natural way to improve the nutritional value of foods, instead of adding synthetic additives.
