Paper Abstract

When assessing the quality of plant-growing products, besides determining their main constituents, such as protein, oil, carbohydrates, moisture, it is often necessary to analyze the content of biologically active compounds, which are present in considerably lower amounts. Among them, carotenoids are the natural pigments, whose biological value is connected with a provitamine activity as well as with an effective participation in the processes of photosynthesis and prevention of singlet oxygen photogeneration. The presence of carotenoids determines the semolina color, which is one of the important criteria for raw material quality in the production of paste.
