The major advantage of this TPC assay is that it is very simple, popular, inexpensive and reproducible. Several disadvantages have been reported for this method such as possible interferences by other reducing agents, but it still remains a very popular method. Recently, enzyme-based biosensors like monophenol monooxygenase (tyrosinase), catechol oxidase (laccase) and horseradish peroxidase (HRP) have been developed for the detection and determination of polyphenols and flavonoids content (Mello et al.
