The Introduction of the Special Issue

High hydrostatic pressure(HHP) is the most widely accepted nonthermal technology with current commercial applications.Fruits and vegetables are source of vitamins,phenolic compounds,carotenoids,betalains,and other bioactive compounds with health benefices.It is generally known that HHP does not alter the covalent bound and as consequence the nutritional properties are generally preserved.Nevertheless,some it has been observed that some of these compounds can be altered after HHP of during storage due to the presence of oxygen(in the case of compounds sensitive of oxygen),residual activity of degradative enzymes,activation of enzymes,among others.Thus,for the first special issue it is proposed a compilation of review papers related with the influence of HHP on antioxidants,explaining the possible mechanism for their modification and including changes in their functionality due to HHP.It is proposed that this special issue will be composed by 5 review papers,each on focused on an antioxidant(vitamin C,caritenoid,anthocyanins,betalains,total phenolic).


The Research Scope of the Special Issue

·HHP effects on vitamins C concentration and functionality

·HHP effects on anthocyanins concentration and functionality

·HHP effects on carotenoids concentration and functionality

·HHP effects on betalains concentration and functionality

·HHP effects on total phenolic concentration and functionality
