Abstract

The changes in the carotenoid pigments of Capsicum annuum cv. Szentesi Kosszarvú during maturation have been investigated quantitatively by means of a HPLC technique. In all of the chromatograms, 56 peaks were detected; 34 carotenoids were identified. In this study, special attention is paid to the formation of minor carotenoids with 3,6-epoxy-β- (oxabicyclo[2.2.1]) and 3,5,6-trihydroxy-β- end groups. The possible biosynthetic route and the identity of capsolutein with the cucurbitaxanthin A are described.
