The action of a crude potato-tuber extract on 9- and 13-hydroperoxides of linoleic and linolenic acids was investigated. HPLC analysis revealed that 50% of the 9-hydroperoxide isomers and almost all the 13-hydroperoxide isomers were rapidly enzymically metabolized. No degradation of fatty acid hydroperoxides was observed with a thermally denatured enzymic extract. GC-MS identification of the volatiles formed by the reaction revealed that no volatiles were detected from the 9-hydroperoxide… Expand
