Carotenoid Profile, Antioxidant Capacity, and Chromoplasts of Pink Guava (Psidium guajava L. Cv. ‘Criolla’) during Fruit Ripening
Pigments of pericarp and pulp of pink guava (Psidium guajava L. cv. ‘Criolla’) were investigated to elucidate the profile and the accumulation of main carotenoids during four stages of fruit ripening by using HPLC-DAD and ...
Ascorbic acid and selected preservatives influence effectiveness of UV treatment of apple juice
The influence of ascorbic acid, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, and sulfur dioxide on the effectiveness of UV pasteurization of apple juice and the effect of UV exposure on the stability of these compounds were evaluated. ...
Películas biodegradables con propiedades bioactivas
Biodegradable films with bioactive properties
El envasado pasivo como barrera física entre el alimento y su entorno no permite posibles interacciones beneficiosas. Por otro lado, la acumulación del material plástico derivado del petróleo usado en el envasado es una ...
Innovative process combining roasting and tempering to mechanically dehull jicaro seeds (Crescentia alata K.H.B)
An innovative process combining roasting and tempering was proposed to promote puffing and mechanical dehulling of jicaro seeds. Roasting was performed at three temperatures (120 °C, 140 °C, and 160 °C) and for six residence ...

The effect of bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L) treatment (raw bean flour, RBF, soaked bean gruel, SBG, and soaked and cooked bean paste, SCBP) in wheat composite cookie production on starch digestibility and consumer ...
HPLC-DAD-APCI/ESI-MSn analysis of carotenoids and α-tocopherol in Costa Rican Acrocomia aculeata fruits of varying maturity stages
Carotenoids and tocopherols were characterised in the meso- and exocarp of wild-growing Costa Rican Acrocomia aculeata fruits. Comprehensive profiling of these lipophilic micronutrients in fruits of three varying maturity ...
Carotenoids and carotenoid esters of orange- and yellow-fleshed mamey sapote ( Pouteria sapota (Jacq.) H.E. Moore & Stearn) fruit and their post-prandial absorption in humans
Although different genotypes of mamey sapote with distinct pulp colors are consumed in countries from Central to South America, in-depth knowledge on genotype-related differences of their carotenoid profile is lacking. ...
