Antifungal activity of secondary plant metabolites from potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L.): Glycoalkaloids and phenolic acids show synergistic effectsDownload
Aims To study the antifungal effects of the potato secondary metabolites α-solanine, α-chaconine, solanidine and caffeic acid, alone or combined. Methods and Results Resistance to glycoalkaloids varied among the fungal species tested, as derived from minimum inhibitory concentrations assays....
Extraction and fractionation of phenolic acids and glycoalkaloids from potato peels using acidified water/ethanol-based solventsDownload
Potato processing generates potato peels as byproducts. Methanolic extracts from the peels result in mixtures of phenolic acids and glycoalkaloids. Phenolic acids have potential for food applications owing to their antioxidant and antibacterial properties. However, when extracted from potatoes,...
In October 2007, the United Nations declared 2008 as The Year of the Potato, highlighting the importance of this crop as a staple food in human nutrition. While fresh potato consumption is decreasing in many countries, more potatoes are currently processed into value-added products to meet the...
