Abstract

The effect of high pressure treatment on biochemical changes during storage was investigated using Brassica rapa root. High pressure treated samples with 400 and 600 MPa formed unique green-blue color during 7-d storage at 4°C. The mechanism of green-blue compound formation would be based on biochemical pathway for a unique green-blue pigment synthesis, containing O 2-dependent steps and possibly enzymatic reactions.
