Carotenoid extract from ripe tomato fruit was subjected to a lipoxygenase-catalysed co-oxidation in the presence of vitamin C and vitamin E at different concentrations. Relative retention (%) of major carotenoids by the experimental mixture was used as an index of their degradation and interaction with the antioxidants. Oxidation-prevention activity of each antioxidant against pigment co-oxidation as impacted by their molar concentration was studied. beta-Carotene was found to be the most…

The antioxidant capacity of the extracts of the biomass from Antarctic strain Sporobolomyces salmonicolor AL1 is proved using their scavenge radical ability and inhibition of lipid autooxidizing using their Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity method.

Effects of industrial tomato paste processing on ascorbic acid, flavonoids and carotenoids and their stability over one-year storage.

Tomato pomace contained significant amounts of carotenoids and flavonoids, indicating that it may be an underutilized processing byproduct, and remained stable through 12 months of ambient storage.

Lipid hydroperoxides in plants.

Leaves of transgenic potato with the fatty acid hydroperoxide lyase enzyme expressed in the antisense orientation were elevated by 38%, indicating a role for this enzyme in the maintenance of cellular levels of lipid hydroperoxides.
