Antioxidant Profiles of Strawberry (Fragaria ananassa) in Relation to Fruit Maturity and Postharvest Storage
Strawberries (Fragaria ananassa Duch.) are harvested at three different maturity stages, stored at 4 °C to 25 °C. The phytochemical and total phenolic content in strawberries differed among the three maturity stages during the evaluated storage period. Results showed that there was a generally slight increase in TSS and significant decreases in both TTA and TAA after refrigerated and subsequent shelf life at room temperature. With regard to the antioxidant properties, the results showed that less ripe strawberries had higher antioxidant capacity (DPPH, ABTS and FRAP assays) than riper strawberries during storage and strongly correlated to the activities of detoxifying enzymes (SOD, CAT and POX). Due to the efficient antioxidant system, strawberries are beneficial to human health.

- The goal of the creation of a biobased economy is challenging to agriculture, forestry, academia, government and industry. The extractable resources of the Earth are finite, regardless of the quibble over when they will be depleted. The economic, political and social demands for biobased chemicals, materials and energy are expected to radically transform the materials industries, particularly the plastics industry as well as the biofuel industry. These changes will be based on the principles of sustainability, eco-efficiency, industrial ecology, and green chemistry and engineering. In keeping with the growth of knowledge in this field, there is a strong need for a forum to share original research related to biobased materials and bioenergy. The Journal of Biobased Materials and Bioenergy (JBMB) has been created as an international peer-reviewed periodical to fulfill the need for communication in these research areas. This journal will encompass related research activities in all fields of science, engineering and the life sciences.
