|Title:||INFLUENCE OF HEATING TIME ON THE THERMAL-DEGRADATION OF BIXIN IN ALKALINE EXTRACTS OF ANNATTO (BIXA-ORELLANA L)|
|Abstract:||The influence of heating time on the thermal degradation of bixin in alkaline extracts of annatto (Bixa orellana L.) was studi ed. The total content and degradation index was determined by high performance liquid chromatography. The results demonstrated that the highest yield of bixin extraction was at pH 10.74 (73.35%). The pigment stability to heat is related to the initial quantity of cis and trans-bixin and to the method employed to obtain the extracts.|
