The aim of present work was to investigate the effect of solid-state fermentation with filamentous fungi (Aspergillus oryzae var. effuses, Aspergillus oryzae, and Aspergillus niger) on total phenolics content (TPC), flavonoids and antioxidant activities of four subfractions of oat, namely n-hexane, ethyl acetate (EA), n-butanol and water subfraction, and compare them with their corresponding subfractions of unfermented oat. The TPC and total flavonoids increased dramatically, especially in EA subfractions (p < 0.05). The levels of antioxidant activity of subfractions were also significantly enhanced (p < 0.05). The highest antioxidant activities were also found in the EA subfractions. The polyphenols in EA were analyzed by HPLC at 280 nm. Most polyphenols were increased remarkably, especially the ferulic and caffeic acid. There was a clear correlation between TPC and antioxidant activity. In conclusion, fungi fermentation is a potential bioprocess for increasing the TPC, flavonoids and antioxidant activity of oat-based food.
