|Title:||Flavanone glycosides in Brazilian orange juice|
|Abstract:||Authentic samples of oranges, frozen concentrated orange juice and pulp-wash, and retail samples of freshly squeezed orange juice and frozen concentrated orange juice have been collected in Brazil and analysed for the flavanone glycosides (FG) narirutin and hesperidin by reversed phase HPLC with UV detection at 280nm. The juice from hand-squeezed fruit gave narirutin and hesperidin concentrations of 16-142 mgl(-1) and 104-537 mgl(-1), respectively. The ratio of hesperidin to narirutin showed varietal difference with Pera having the highest ratio (mean 8.4) and Baia the lowest (3.6). Frozen concentrated orange juice contained higher quantities of FG with narirutin ranging from 62 to 84 mgl(-1) and hesperidin from 531 to 690 mgl(-1) (after dilution to 12 degrees Brix). In frozen concentrated orange juice pulp-wash, the narirutin level ranged from 155 to 239 mgl(-1) and hesperidin from 1089 to 1200 mgl(-1). The analysis of 23 samples of freshly squeezed juice from the Brazilian market place showed that the FG content of most samples (9.1 to 94.8 and 105.8 to 586.6 mgl(-1), respectively, for narirutin and hesperidin) was similar to those found for authentic ones, indicating that these orange juices were not adulterated.
