Changes in hesperidin content in different parts of freshly harvested citrus fruits grown in Taiwan


The change in hesperidin content in each part of four citrus fruits (Liu-cheng, Ponkan, Tankan and Hai-li) produced in Taiwan during their respective harvest periods was investigated. Each part of these citrus fruits contained hesperidin, with albedo having the highest amount of hesperidin (1.0-3.05 g/100g fresh wt.) and seed containing the least (0.006-0.044 g/100g feesh wt.). The total content of hesperidin in each part of these citrus fruits decreased with increasing maturity of the fruit. The hesperidin content in Liu-cheng and ponkan was significantly higher than that of Tankan and Hai-li.
