glucosinolates, anthocyanins, total phenols, and vitamin C, as well as antioxidant capacity, were investigated in chinese kale sprouts treated with both glucose and gibberellic acid (GA3). The combination of 3% (0.03 g/ml) glucose and 5 μmol/L GA3 treatment was effective in increasing glucosinolate content while glucose or GA3 treatment alone did not influence significantly almost all individual glucosinolates or total glucosinolates. The total phenolic content and antioxidant activity of chinese kale sprouts were enhanced by combined treatment with glucose and GA3, which could be useful in improving the main health-promoting compounds and antioxidant activity in chinese kale sprouts.


方法:以芥蓝芽菜为材料,使用3%(0.03 g/ml)葡萄糖和5 µmo/L赤霉酸进行外源处理,以水处理作为对照组。用高效液相色谱法分析芥子油苷和维生素C的含量;采用分光光度法检测花青素的含量;用Folin-Ciocalteu试剂法测定总多酚的含量;利用亚铁还原能力实验(FRAP)法进行总抗氧化能力的评估。
