Four cultivars of sea buckthorn berries were analyzed for their carotenoid and chlorophyll contents during ripening in three consecutive years. The different carotenoids generally increased in concentration during ripening and comprised from 120 to 1425 microg/g of DW of total carotenoids (1.5-18.5 mg/100 g of FW) depending on cultivar, harvest time, and year. GLM analyses revealed the effect of cultivar to be considerably larger than that of year and harvest time. The content of pheophytin a… 


Thin layer chromatography (TLC) shows that the shapes of natural sea-buckthorn bushes growing in the floodplains of rivers flowing in the Northern Azerbaijan differ both in content and qualitative composition of carotenoids.

Chemical constituents of sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) fruit in populations of central Alborz Mountains in Iran

Background and objectivesHippophae rhamnoides L. known as sea buckthorn is a deciduous medicinal shrub belonging to Elaeagnaceae family. In this study, the most important chemical constituents of sea

Content of carotenoids in roots of seventeen cultivars of Daucus carota L.

The highest content of carotenoids was found in cultivars: 'Korund F(1)' (48 mg/100g of fresh weight) and 'Salsa F(2)', and the antioxidant properties of selected cultivars were compared using the DPPH method.

Fatty acid composition of developing sea buckthorn ( Hippophae rhamnoides L . ) Berry and the Transcriptome of the mature

Background: Sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) is a hardy, fruit-producing plant known historically for its medicinal and nutraceutical properties. The most recognized product of sea buckthorn

Fatty Acid Composition of Developing Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) Berry and the Transcriptome of the Mature Seed

This study provides the first comprehensive genomic resources represented by expressed sequences for sea buckthorn, and demonstrates that the seed oil of Canadian-grown sea Buckthorn cultivars contains high levels of linoleic acid and α-linolenic acid in a close to 1∶1 ratio, which is beneficial for human health.

Potential Application of Hippophae Rhamnoides in Wheat Bread Production

The obtained results recommend the addition of 1% Hippophae rhamnoides berry flour in wheat bread, in order to obtain a product enriched in health-promoting biomolecules, with better sensorial and antioxidant properties and longer shelf life.



Tocopherols and tocotrienols in sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) berries during ripening.

Variations in tocopherols and tocotrienol levels in sea buckthorn berries due to cultivar, year, and ripening stage should therefore be considered in the production of nutritional products.

Composition of phenolic acids in sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) berries

The composition of phenolic acids in several varieties of sea buckthorn berries was determined by GC and MS. In six cultivars the total content of phenolic acids ranged from 3570±282 to 4439±405 mg

Changes in sugar, organic acid, flavonol and carotenoid composition during ripening of berries of three seabuckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) cultivars

Soluble solid, sugar, organic acid, flavonol and carotenoid content were determined in seabuckthorn berries of the three German cultivars Askola, Hergo and Leikora, collected at different harvesting

Sea buckthorn products: manufacture and composition.

The manufacture of the main products derived from sea buckthorn is described, including several examples from the patent literature, to form a comprehensive source of information on the manufacture and composition of sea buckstorn products.

Xanthophyll esterification accompanying carotenoid overaccumulation in chromoplast of Capsicum annuum ripening fruits is a constitutive process and useful for ripeness index.

The inclusion in the present study of a variety (Negral) that retains chlorophylls when ripening, and which shows the same esterification behavior, supports the idea that carotenogenesis is normal and independent of chlorophyLL catabolism.


In contrast to other berry fruits in which lipids occur only in seeds, lipids in sea-buckthorn berries were distributed in the rind, flesh, and seeds. Over 70% lipids occurred in the free form while

Changes in antioxidant effects and their relationship to phytonutrients in fruits of sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) during maturation.

The crude extract of fruits showed the highest inhibitory effect in both 2,2-azobis(2,4-dimethylvaleronitrile) (AMVN) and ascorbate-iron induced lipid peroxidations.

Separation identification and quantification of the major carotenoids in extracts of apricots peaches cantaloupe and pink grapefruit by liquid chromatography

The predominant carotenoids and carotenol fatty acid esters in extracts from fruits have been separated and quantitated on C 18 reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography columns.

Absorption of flavonols derived from sea buckthorn (Hippophaë rhamnoides L.) and their effect on emerging risk factors for cardiovascular disease in humans.

Animal and human studies suggest that sea buckthorn flavonoids may scavenge free radicals, lower blood viscosity, and enhance cardiac function, and the effects of flavonol aglycones derived from sea Buckthorn on the risk factors of cardiovascular disease as well as their absorption were studied in humans.

Chlorophyll catabolism in senescing plant tissues: In vivo breakdown intermediates suggest different degradative pathways for Citrus fruit and parsley leaves.

High-pressure liquid chromatography was used to separate chlorophyll derivatives in acetone extracts from senescing Citrus fruit peel, autumnal Melia azedarach L. leaves, and dark-held detached parsley leaves, showing that the in vivo increase in dephytylated derivatives coincided with the decrease in total chlorophyLL.
