Antioxidant activity of pomegranate juice and its relationship with phenolic composition and processing.
TLDR
HPLC-DAD and HPLC-MS analyses of the juices revealed that commercial juices contained the pomegranate tannin punicalagin while only traces of this compound were detected in the experimental juice obtained from arils in the laboratory, which shows that pomesgranate industrial processing extracts some of the hydrolyzable tannins present in the fruit rind.

Preharvest and postharvest factors influencing vitamin C content of horticultural crops.
Abstract Vitamin C, including ascorbic acid and dehydroascorbic acid, is one of the most important nutritional quality factors in many horticultural crops and has many biological activities in theExpand
Antioxidant capacities, phenolic compounds, carotenoids, and vitamin C contents of nectarine, peach, and plum cultivars from California.
TLDR
There was a strong correlation between total phenolics and antioxidant activity of nectarines, peaches, and plums and the contributions of phenolic compounds to antioxidant activity were much greater than those of vitamin C and carotenoids. Expand
Modified atmosphere packaging of fruits and vegetables.
Modified atmospheres (MA), i.e., elevated concentrations of carbon dioxide and reduced levels of oxygen and ethylene, can be useful supplements to provide optimum temperature and relative humidity inExpand
Increasing Food Availability by Reducing Postharvest Losses of Fresh Produce
Qualitative losses (such as loss of caloric and nutritive value, loss of acceptability by consumers, and loss of edibility) are more difficult to measure than quantitative losses of fresh fruits andExpand
FRUIT MATURITY, RIPENING, AND QUALITY RELATIONSHIPS
TLDR
All fruits, with a few exceptions, reach their best eating quality when allowed to ripen on the plant, and some fruits are usually picked mature but unripe so that they can withstand the postharvest handling system when shipped long-distance. Expand
HPLC-DAD-ESIMS analysis of phenolic compounds in nectarines, peaches, and plums.
TLDR
The phenolic compounds of 25 peach, nectarine, and plum cultivars were studied and quantified by HPLC-DAD-ESIMS and there was no clear trend in phenolic content with ripening of the different cultivars. Expand
