Carotenoids and Tocopherol Profiling in Fleshy Fruits


Methods Mol Biol. 2024;2798:141-151. doi: 10.1007/978-1-0716-3826-2_9.


Carotenoids and tocopherols are among the most powerful lipophilic antioxidants accumulated in fruit and vegetable crops. This chapter describes a method for the separation and quantification of carotenoids/chlorophylls and tocopherols based on microextraction followed by reverse- and normal-phase HPLC, respectively. Using this method, high-throughput, accurate analysis of these compounds can be performed in leaf and fruit samples.
