Antioxidant capacity as influenced by total phenolic and anthocyanin content, maturity, and variety of Vaccinium species
Different cultivars of four Vaccinium species [Vaccinium corymbosum L (Highbush), Vaccinium ashei Reade (Rabbiteye), Vaccinium angustifolium (Lowbush), and Vaccinium myrtillus L (Bilberry)] wereExpand
Antioxidant capacity, vitamin C, phenolics, and anthocyanins after fresh storage of small fruits.
Fresh strawberries (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.), raspberries (Rubus idaeus Michx.), highbush blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum L.), and lowbush blueberries (Vaccinium angustifolium Aiton) were storedExpand
Blueberry polyphenols increase lifespan and thermotolerance in Caenorhabditis elegans
The beneficial effects of polyphenol compounds in fruits and vegetables are mainly extrapolated from in vitro studies or short‐term dietary supplementation studies. Due to cost and duration,Expand
Effects of Production and Processing Factors on Major Fruit and Vegetable Antioxidants
ABSTRACT: Public awareness of the purported health benefits of dietary antioxidants has increased the demand for fruit and vegetable products with recognized and improved antioxidant quality and hasExpand
Interspecific variation in anthocyanins, phenolics, and antioxidant capacity among genotypes of highbush and lowbush blueberries (Vaccinium section cyanococcus spp.).
Recent interest in the possible protective effects of dietary antioxidant compounds against human degenerative disease has prompted investigation of foods such as blueberries (Vaccinium sp.), whichExpand
Chemical Composition of Lowbush Blueberry Cultivars
The chemical composition of the lowbush blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium Aiton) cultivars Blomidon, Cumberland, and Fundy were examined at three stages of fruit maturity, before and afterExpand
Blueberry supplementation improves memory in older adults.
The prevalence of dementia is increasing with expansion of the older adult population. In the absence of effective therapy, preventive approaches are essential to address this public health problem.Expand
Resveratrol, pterostilbene, and piceatannol in vaccinium berries.
A study was conducted to determine the presence of resveratrol, pterostilbene, and piceatannol in Vaccinium berries. Samples representing selections and cultivars of 10 species from Mississippi,Expand
Identification of anthocyanins in the liver, eye, and brain of blueberry-fed pigs.
Dietary intervention with anthocyanins may confer benefits in brain function, including vision. Research to date indicates that animals have only a limited capacity to absorb anthocyanins, comparedExpand
Anthocyanins, Phenolics, and Antioxidant Capacity of Processed Lowbush Blueberry Products
: Temperature, pH, and oxygenation of extracted blueberries were examined to determine how processing may affect the antioxidant capacity of blueberry food products. Extraction of fruit at 60 °CExpand
