Estimation of carotenoid and vitamin A losses during industrial air drying and freeze drying

Arquivos de Biologia e Tecnologia 36(1): 83-94
Estimation of carotenoid and vitamin A losses during industrial air drying and freeze drying
A cultivar of spinach grown commercially in Brazil had beta -carotene 489, lutein and violaxanthin 1025, zeaxantina 182 and neoxanthin 49 ug/g. After drying in air and after freeze drying, beta -carotene decreased (P<=0.01) by about 12% but other values did not decrease and neoxanthin showed a significant (P<=0.05) increase.
