Compositional analysis by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry of triterpenoid glycosides in different tomato cultivars, ripening stages, and parts of fruits showed that alpha-tomatine was generally most abundant in the flesh of the mature green stage, whereas esculeoside A was predominant in that of the red ripe stage. The sum of these glycoalkaloids(More)
Various triterpenoid glycosides were extracted from whole unripe tomato fruits ( Lycopersicon esculentum cv. Cedrico), using aqueous 70% (v/v) ethanol to study their surfactant properties. Cation-exchange chromatography using a Source 15S column and subsequent semipreparative HPLC using an XTerra RP18 were employed to purify individual triterpenoid(More)
This study used a decompression drying instrument to investigate the effects of a drying treatment on the physical properties of solid foods. Commercial tofu was used as a model food and was treated at different temperature and pressure conditions in a drying chamber. Overall, high temperatures resulted in better drying. Additionally, pressure in the(More)
