Abstract

The carotenoid compositions of four different, industrially-produced paprika pastes (Piros Arany delicacy; Piros Arany hot; Vega delicacy; Vega hot) were investigated by HPLC, and compared with the composition of fresh red, tomato-shaped paprika (Capsicum annuum var. lycopersice forme rubrum). In addition, two kinds of ground raw poprika (Erös Pista; Édes Anna) were also investigated. In total, 23 carotenoids have been identified or tentatively identified, based on their UV-Vis spectra and co-chromatography with authentic samples.
