A robust electrochemical method to measure the total phenol content in food samples is presented. Under optimal condition, BDD electrode showed excellent performance to detect the oxidation of several phenols and does not present the drawback due to electrode fouling. The analytical method used to perform such measurement has been optimized and successfully applied in different food samples. The results obtained were compared with the standard Folin-Ciocalteau method.
