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 ...
Potential Opportunities and Challenges for Research Collaboration with Latin America in Agriculture and Food Science
Latin America (LatAm) is an ethnic and geographic concept associated with those areas of the American continent where romance languages (Spanish, Portuguese, or French) predominate, i.e., Mexico, Central and South America, ...
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. ...
Characterization of Mesocarp and Kernel Lipids from Jacq., [Kunth] Cortés, and Their Interspecific Hybrids
Morphological traits, total lipid contents, and fatty acid profiles were assessed in fruits of several accessions of Elaeis oleifera [Kunth] Cortes,́ Elaeis guineensis Jacq., and their interspecific hybrids. The latter ...
