Red cabbage contains glucosinolates, precursors to health-promoting isothiocyanates. However, raw cabbage often releases mainly epithionitriles and nitriles from glucosinolates. To increase isothiocyanate formation, the effect of acid usage in the preparation of red cabbage was evaluated. Moreover, the effects of the chosen boiling method (acidic boiled red cabbage versus neutral boiled blue cabbage) on glucosinolate degradation were investigated using UHPLC-DAD-ToF-MS and GC-MS. The addition… Expand
Seasonal Variation of Glucosinolate Hydrolysis Products in Commercial White and Red Cabbages (Brassica oleracea var. capitata)
It was shown that commercial cabbages purchased in early autumn could be healthier options than those purchased later in the year, mainly nitriles and epithionitriles, and that glucosinolate hydrolysis behavior varied considerably over the season. Expand
Analysis of Processing Effects on Glucosinolate Profiles in Red Cabbage by LC-MS/MS in Multiple Reaction Monitoring Mode
It was confirmed that microwaving and steaming retained higher levels of glucosinolates than other methods and may be better for cooking red cabbage. Expand
Selenium Fortification Alters the Growth, Antioxidant Characteristics and Secondary Metabolite Profiles of Cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis) Cultivars in Hydroponic Culture
F foliar application of selenium at 10 mg/L led to an accumulation of secondary metabolites and also positively affected the growth and yield of florets and that of cauliflower cultivars “Clapton” and “Graffiti”. Expand
Effect of Vegetable Juice, Puree, and Pomace on Chemical and Technological Quality of Fresh Pasta
Spinach and red cabbage juice are better colorants than puree or pomace as they change the colour of the pasta more dramatically at the same substitution level, which indicates a premium pasta product for the food industry. Expand
Approaches for enhancing the stability and formation of sulforaphane.
Strategies that could be employed to improve the stability of SF, increase SF formation during thermal and non-thermal processing of broccoli, and enhance the myrosinase-like activity of the gut microbiota are discussed. Expand
Subsequent treatment of leafy vegetables with low doses of UVB-radiation does not provoke cytotoxicity, genotoxicity, or oxidative stress in a human liver cell model
Abstract Ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation in low but ecological-relevant doses acts as a regulator in the plant's secondary metabolism. This study investigates the effect of UVB radiation fromExpand
Glucosinolates: Natural Occurrence, Biosynthesis, Accessibility, Isolation, Structures, and Biological Activities
The natural occurrence, accessibility via chemical, synthetic biochemical pathways of GSL, and the current methodology of extraction, purification, and characterization of GSL are reviewed. Expand
One-pot process for simultaneously obtaining oil and sinigrin from field pennycress (Thlaspi arvense) seeds using microwave-assisted biphasic extraction
Abstract In the present study, microwave-assisted biphasic extraction (MABE) was first and successfully applied to the simultaneous extraction of oil and sinigrin from field pennycress (ThlaspiExpand


Isothiocyanates, Nitriles, and Epithionitriles from Glucosinolates Are Affected by Genotype and Developmental Stage in Brassica oleracea Varieties
From a cancer-preventive point of view, consumption of mini heads of the B. oleracea varieties is recommended, because during head development, both glucosinolate concentrations as well as hydrolysis products changed and mini heads contained the highest isothiocyanate concentrations. Expand
Influence of Cooking Methods on Glucosinolates and Isothiocyanates Content in Novel Cruciferous Foods
Results showed that stir-frying and steaming were suitable techniques to preserve GLS and ITC, while boiling was deleterious for the retention of these bioactive compounds in these trending Brassica. Expand
Optimizing isothiocyanate formation during enzymatic glucosinolate breakdown by adjusting pH value, temperature and dilution in Brassica vegetables and Arabidopsis thaliana
The results show that isothiocyanate intake can be strongly increased by optimizing the conditions of preparation of Brassicales vegetables, and that the pH value has the greatest impact. Expand
Thermally induced degradation of sulfur-containing aliphatic glucosinolates in broccoli sprouts (Brassica oleracea var. italica) and model systems.
In broccoli sprouts,methylsulfanylalkyl GSL were more susceptible to degradation at high temperatures, whereas methylsulfinylalkym GSL were revealed to be more affected in aqueous medium under alkaline conditions, conditions being typical for domestic processing. Expand
Processing (blanching, boiling, steaming) effects on the content of glucosinolates and antioxidant-related parameters in cauliflower (Brassica oleracea L. ssp. botrytis)
Five different varieties of cauliflower (Brassica oleracea L. ssp. botrytis); two white (cv. ‘Aviso’, ‘Dania’), one purple (cv. ‘Grafitti’), one green (cv. ‘Emeraude’) and one romanesco/greenExpand
Content of glucosinolates in cruciferous vegetables grown at the same site for two years under different climatic conditions.
Comparison of the GLS contents of the same cultivar in two production years, which differed in temperature and rainfall rate, showed that low average 10-day rainfall and high average temperature during the vegetation period significantly increased theGLS content of vegetables. Expand
Leaching and degradation kinetics of glucosinolates during boiling of Brassica oleracea vegetables and the formation of their breakdown products.

Influence of the chemical structure on the thermal degradation of the glucosinolates in broccoli sprouts
Abstract Glucosinolates are secondary plant metabolites occurring in Brassica vegetables. Food processing significantly reduces glucosinolate content, among other things due to thermal degradation.Expand
