Jun 30 2020Peppers are one of the most widely processed and consumed vegetables in the world The present study was established to obtain phenolic profiles of two fresh and oven-cooked pepper cultivars red hot Aleppo (Capsicum annuum L ) and red sweet pepper Capia (Capsicum annuum L ) Phenolic extracts of pepper samples have been for the first time

2 1 Plant Material California-type sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum L cv Melchor) fruits obtained from Syngenta Seeds Ltd (El Ejido Almera Spain) were used at two different ripening stages: Green immature and ripe red Pepper plants were cultivated with optimal nutrient levels applied on rockwood as the soil substrate in the experimental greenhouse owned by Syngenta

Mar 01 2013In a general way it was found that the aqueous extract of "sweet Italian" pepper seeds showed better antioxidant activity The scavenging of O 2 − and NO is very important once it can prevent the formation of other deleterious radicals like peroxynitrite that can be extremely harmful to cells (Mikkelsen and Wardman 2003)

Green and red pepper fruits (Capsicum annuum L type Lamuyo) were used in this study The analysis by electron microscopy showed that peroxisomes from both types of fruits contained crystalline cores which varied in shape and size and the presence of chloroplasts and chromoplasts in green and red pepper fruits respectively was confirmed

Antioxidant constituents such as carotenoids (capsanthin phytoene lutein β-cryptoxanthin) polyphenols content (p-coumaric ferulic p-hydroxybenzoic caffeic acid sinapic acid and quercetin-3-glucoside) and marketable yield were investigated in 11 sweet pepper cultivars grown under controlled temperature plastic tunnel and white shade net

Assessment of antimicrobial and antioxidant potential of

In the present study eight Cytoplasmic Male Sterile (CMS) lines of pepper and one open pollinated commercial variety 'California wonder' were assessed for their antimicrobial and antioxidant potential For antimicrobial activity fresh fruits crushed in 10% 20% 30% and 40% methanol were analyzed Thirty per cent and forty percent methanolic extracts were found to

Jan 01 2011The interest in the consumption of pepper fruits (Capsicum annuum L ) is to a large extent due to its content of bioactive compounds and their importance as dietary antioxidants In the present study the effect of harvest time based on maturity stage on changes in the phenolic compounds especially flavonoids such as quercetin and catechin total phenols ascorbic acid antioxidant

Sweet bell peppers are greatly appreciated for their taste color pungency and aroma Additionally they are good sources of bioactive compounds with antioxidant activity which can be improved by the use of elicitors Elicitors act as metabolite-inducing factors (MIF) by mimic stress conditions Since plants rarely experience a single stress condition one by one but are

A pot experiment was conducted to compare the vegetative performance yield and antioxidant content of Capsicum Annuum L (Sweet pepper) in response to three sources of fertilizers i e organic (cow manure compost 5% N: 3% P 2 O 5:1% K 2 O) inorganic (NPK 12% N 24%P 12%K) and a source of bio-organic fertilizer containing two

The bell pepper variety also affected the level of antioxidant compounds in fruits CONCLUSION: Organic growing increased the level of antioxidant compounds such as carotenoids phenolic compounds and vitamin C in sweet bell pepper The second significant factor affecting the antioxidant compound content of sweet bell pepper was variety

Characterisation of antioxidant compounds in sweet bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L ) under organic and conventional growing systems Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture 2012 92 (12) 2409-2415 DOI: 10 1002/jsfa 5624 Adedayo O Ademiluyi Ganiyu Oboh

Effect of compost on antioxidant components and fruit

In order to determine the effect of compost (CO) on antioxidant compounds and fruit quality of sweet pepper (Capsicum annum L ) an experiment was conducted in open field Treatments consisted of four levels of compost (0 5 10 and 15 ton ha-1) The experiment was designed in randomized block design with three replications

May 21 2004Sweet peppers (Capsicum annuum L ) cv Vergasa have been studied at four maturity stages (immature green green immature red and red) The individual phenolics (hydroxycinnamic acids and flavonoids) vitamin C (ascorbic acid and dehydroascorbic acid) and individual carotenoids were characterized and quantified Five hydroxycinnamic derivatives

Objectives: Sweet peppers Capsicum annuum L (C annuum) are an excellent source of vitamins A and C as well as phenolic compounds which are important antioxidant components that may reduce the risk of diseases The objective of this study was to evaluate their antioxidant activity under various temperatures Materials and Methods: To compare the antioxidant
