content and antioxidant activity of Beta vulgaris: Effect of hot air convective drying and storage.
As a physical factor, light is especially important for betalain
production, as seen in studies carried out on beetroot (Shin, Park, & Paek, 2013) and Suaeda salsa (Wang & Liu, 2006), as it acts in reprogramming plant metabolism.
Stability of betalain
pigment from red dragon fruit (Hylocereus polyrhizus).
It is the most important pigment of the betalains
family and belongs to the betacyanins group characterized by a red-purple color, such as that extracted from beetroot.
ficus-indica fruit aqueous extract and its betalain
pigment indicaxanthin on the proliferation of the human colon cancer cell line Caco2.
It ranks among the 10 most powerful vegetables due to its antioxidant capacity ascribed to the high polyphenolic and betalain
One of the characteristics of beets is the obvious coloration of roots, stems and leaves caused by betalain
pigments that can turn them white, yellow, pink or red.
stability and degradation structural and chromatic aspects.
Here are my picks: predicting injury with iPod-based measurement of core stability; five case studies of iron non-deficiency; the ergogenic effects of a high-potassium meal, paracetamol and betalain
; and a possible blood marker for overtraining.
pigments, especially those from the vine-cacti are excellent pigments due to their beautiful color, their stability in various ranges of pH and heat treatments and their high nutritional value.
