Potatoes regarding their consumption are a significant antioxidant source in human nutrition. The main potato an tioxidants are polyphenols, ascorbic acid, carotenoids, tocopherols, α-lipoic acid, and selenium. The most contained polyphenolic antioxidants in potatoes are L-tyrosine, caffeic acid, scopolin, chlorogenic and cryptochlorogenic acid and ferulic acid. In red and purple potatoes are in addition contained acylated anthocyanins and pigmented potatoes display two to three times higher…

Metabolite profiling of red and blue potatoes revealed cultivar and tissue specific patterns for anthocyanins and other polyphenols
TLDR
The different anthocyanin profiles in red and blue potato cultivars likely relate to superior regulation of the expression and activities of hydroxylases and methyltransferases rather than to differences for downstream glycosyl- and acyltransferases.
Bioactive Compounds in Potato Tubers: Effects of Farming System, Cooking Method, and Flesh Color
TLDR
The analysis showed that organically grown potatoes with creamy, light yellow, and yellow flesh had significantly higher TPs than did potatoes grown conventionally and a dry cooking method increased the TP contents in potatoes by about 30%, regardless of the flesh color and the production system.
Effects of Cooking Methods on Nutritional Content in Potato Tubers
AbstractPotato is cultivated worldwide and constitutes a substantial component of the global population’s diet. Potato tubers are rich in carbohydrates and certain vitamins, minerals, phenolic acids,
BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS IN YELLOW, LIGHT YELLOW, AND CREAM-COLOURED POTATO TUBERS AFTER SHORT-TERM STORAGE AND BOILING
This study measured the changes in bioactive compounds [L-ascorbic acid (AA) and total phenolic (TP) compounds] and antioxidant activity (measured in Trolox equivalents, TE) in six potato (Solanum
Trypsin inhibitor, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities as well as chemical composition of potato sprouts originating from yellow- and colored-fleshed varieties
Abstract Potato sprouts could be a valuable resource of phytochemicals such as secondary plant metabolites, potential antioxidants and nutritive compounds. In this work, potato sprout extracts of
EFFECT OF THE PRODUCTION PROCESS ON THE CONTENT OF ANTHOCYANINS IN DRIED RED-FLESHED POTATO CUBES
This study aimed at determining the effect of particular stages in the laboratory manufacture of dehydrated potato cubes on the stability of anthocyanin content in redfleshed potato varieties. The

Determination of free phenolic compounds in potato samples was optimized using a high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method with on-line diode array detection. This method was applied to
Antioxidant Activity and Total Phenolics in Different Genotypes of Potato (Solanum tuberosum, L.)
Antioxidant activity of potato compared with that of broccoli, onion, carrot and bell peppers was higher than all except broccoli. Patatin appeared to be the major water-soluble compound that showed
Wounding stress increases the phenolic content and antioxidant capacity of purple-flesh potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L.).
TLDR
Results show that selection of appropriate abiotic stresses can enhance the nutritional and functional value of potatoes.
Engineering plants with increased levels of the antioxidant chlorogenic acid
TLDR
Overexpression of HQT in tomato caused plants to accumulate higher levels of CGA, with no side-effects on the levels of other soluble phenolics, and to show improved antioxidant capacity and resistance to infection by a bacterial pathogen.
Chlorogenic acid content of fresh and processed potatoes determined by ultraviolet spectrophotometry
Chlorogenic acid is reported to be involved in preharvest defenses of the potato plant against fungi and insects, in postharvest browning, and in after-cooking blackening, all of which affect quality
