Effects of storage time and boiling on root tuber colour in two sweet potato cultivars



Effects of storage time and boiling on root tuber colour in two sweet potato cultivars



Spanish Journal of Agricultural Research 2(4): 570-575



The aim of this study was to determine the effect of storage time and boiling on the colour of sweet potato (cultivars Morada INTA and Regal) root tubers. Increasing storage time more strongly reduced the skin chroma (C*) of raw Morada INTA tubers than that of raw Regal root tubers. The skin hue angle (H degrees ) of raw Morada INTA tubers increased linearly with storage time; at the end of the experiment values were almost twice those at baseline.
