1 . 3 Potential Phytochemical Extraction Methods

  title={1 . 3 Potential Phytochemical Extraction Methods},
  author={G. Duncan and G. S. Lee and B. Young},
Kakadu plum ( Terminalia ferdinandiana) is a native Australian fruit which is known to have very high concentrations of phytochemicals, in cluding vitamin C concentrations of up to 100 times that contained in oranges. However, due to a combination of factors including the size, texture and flavour of the frui t as well as product and supply variability, it has not found widespread use in the food industry. For example, the fibrous nature of its flesh means the fruit is not easily juiced. The… Expand
