Molar absorptivity and color characteristics of acylated and non-acylated pelargonidin-based anthocyanins.
The effects of glycosylation and acylation on the spectral characteristics, molar absorptivity, and color attributes of purified acylated and non-acylated pelargonidin derivatives were compared.
Anthocyanin pigment composition of red-fleshed potatoes
Red potatoes (Solanum tuberosum and S. stenotomum) were evaluated as potential sources for natural red colorants. Qualitative anthocyanin composition, pigment content and phenolic composition were
Electrospray and tandem mass spectroscopy as tools for anthocyanin characterization.
ES-MS may be used as a fast procedure for identification of anthocyanins, requiring minimal sample preparation, and in combination with HPLC, ES-MS and MS-MS could be very powerful tools for Anthocyanin characterization and monitoring the authenticity of antho-containing fruit juices and vegetable extracts.
Herbivore-Induced Volatiles in the Perennial Shrub, Vaccinium corymbosum, and Their Role in Inter-branch Signaling
Exposure to HIPVs triggered systemic induction of direct defenses against gypsy moth and primed volatile emissions, which can be an indirect defense in blueberry plants, which appear to rely on HIPVs as external signals for inter-branch communication.
Influence of potato composition on chip color quality
Potato constituents were monitored to evaluate their contribution to potato chip color. Five chipping potato varieties: Snowden, AC Ptarmigan, FL 1625, FL 1815 and ND2471-8 were evaluated. Ascorbic
Solubility of commercial milk protein concentrates and milk protein isolates.
The differences in the solubility of MPC and MPI were associated with a difference in mineral composition, which may be attributed to differences in processing conditions, and additional studies on the role of minerals composition on MPC80solubility are warranted.
Rapid detection and identification of bacterial strains by Fourier transform near-infrared spectroscopy.
The Fourier transform near-infrared spectroscopy and multivariate pattern recognition techniques reproducibly distinguished between different E. coli isolates and conclusively identified the relationship between a new isolate and one of the test species.
