928 PB 503 ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY AND TOTAL PHENOLIC CONTENT IN DIFFERENT GENOTYPES OF POTATO (SOLANUM TUBEROSUM)

in HortScience

Two varieties of yellow flesh (Granola and Yukon Gold) and two white flesh (Viking and Russet Norkotah) potatoes were grown near Springlake, Texas in the summer of 1992. Varieties were investigated for their antioxidant activity and total phenolic content. Varieties were significantly different in antioxidant activity and total phenolic content (P = 0.0001). Granola had the highest antioxidant activity and Russet Norkotah the highest total phenolic content, while Yukon Gold had the lowest antioxidant activity and total phenolic content. Further study was conducted on tuber parts (distal end, center, and stem end) and among sections within each tuber part. Differences were slight among tuber parts in antioxidant activity, but significant in total phenolic content. Moreover, the differences were slight among the three sections for antioxidant activity and total phenolic content, while the fourth section containing the skin (epidermal tissue) had the highest antioxidant activity and total phenolic content.
