Abstract For five new clones of pomegranate, cultivated under homogeneous conditions, changes in juice anthocyanin contents during ripening were studied. Six anthocyanin pigments were found to be responsible for the red color of pomegranate juice. These were quantitatively and qualitatively analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography and identified as delphinidin 3-glucoside and 3,5-diglucoside, cyanidin 3-glucoside and 3,5-diglucoside and pelargonidin 3-glucoside and 3,5-diglucoside… Expand

Anthocyanin and colour changes during processing of pomegranate (Punica granatum L., cv. Hicaznar) juice from sacs and whole fruit
Abstract The effects of clarification and pasteurisation on anthocyanins (ACNs) and the colour of pomegranate juice (PJ) produced from sacs and whole fruits were investigated. Clarification caused aExpand

Anthocyanins and polyphenol oxidase from dried arils of pomegranate (Punica granatum L.)
Abstract Anthocyanins are natural pigments responsible for red, purple, and blue colouration in plants. Human consumption of anthocyanins is increasing because of the rising awareness and interest inExpand
Sigmoidal kinetics of anthocyanin accumulation during fruit ripening: A comparison between açai fruits (Euterpe oleracea) and other anthocyanin-rich fruits
Anthocyanins are natural colorants with increasing interest. Euterpe oleracea fruits (EOF) (acai) are an interesting phenolic compounds source. They are extremely rich in two anthocyanins:Expand
Salinity effects on colour and health traits in the pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) fruit peel
Irrigation water salinity effects on colour and health ingredients in the pomegranate peel were studied in two accessions, ‘Wonderful’ and ‘SP-2’, grown under a wide range of salinities, 1.2 to 9 dSExpand
A "White" Anthocyanin-less Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) Caused by an Insertion in the Coding Region of the Leucoanthocyanidin Dioxygenase (LDOX; ANS) Gene
The results indicate that the insertion in PgLDOX is responsible for the "white" anthocyanin-less phenotype, the first direct molecular, genetic and chemical evidence for the effect of a natural modification in the LDOX gene on color accumulation in a fruit-bearing woody perennial deciduous tree.
