Plant extraction is a common practice performed in community with the presence of native species with strong population interest. For many Brazilian regions, extractivism acts as a complement of income for the population. The present work aimed to evaluate artisanal liqueurs produced in local communities of the State of Pernambuco in order to observe the antioxidant potentials present during production stages. For this, trials were performed with dpph and abts radicals. All the liqueurs evaluated showed antioxidant potential, with expressive results through the sequestration of the DPPH radical, comprising values of 50 CI between 0.5 and 2.25.
