Effect of Varieties and Tuber Sizes on Losses of Ascorbic Acid and Phenol Content of Potato Tubers Stored Under Ambient Conditions

Effect of Varieties and Tuber Sizes on Losses of Ascorbic Acid and Phenol Content of Potato Tubers Stored Under Ambient Conditions

The Investigation was conducted by keeping healthy potato tubers of three different sizes for each genotype in hessian cloth bag at room temperature in four replications. The experiment was carried out to evaluate the effect of varieties and tuber sizes on the ascorbic acid and phenols during the storage period of three months. From the findings, it was concluded that the ascorbic acid content and phenolic content decreased with increasing storage period. The maximum ascorbic acid and phenols were noticed in Kufri Bahar and minimum in Kufri Pushkar. Among the sizes, ascorbic acid had positive, while the phenol content had negative correlation with tuber size. ..
