Ascorbic acid (AA) is one of the most powerful natural antioxidant able to prevent enzymatic browning after exogenous treatment of minimally-processed products. The specific mechanism by which AA prevents enzymatic browning remains still debated and a direct effect of endogenous AA stimulation and browning has never been studied. The manipulation of AA… CONTINUE READING
