The effect of various mechanical treatment conditions on changes in the composition and antioxidant activity of the polysaccharide fractions of the moss Sphagnum fuscum and sphagnum moss peat was studied. It was found that mechanochemical treatment changed the composition of polysaccharide moss and peat fractions, and the antioxidant activity of polysaccharides depended on the hydroxyarene aglycon content of polysaccharides.
