During Malta Polyphenols World Congress 2015, Johanna Brauch will give a talk about chemical composition and color stability of the anthocyanin-rich superfruit

Pr BrauchJohanna Brauch will give a talk during Polyphenols World Congres 2015 held in Malta on June 3-5, about maqui berries - chemical composition and color stability of the anthocyanin-rich superfruit.

"Maqui (Aristotelia chilensins (Mol.) Stuntz) is an evergreen shrub originated from South America that yields small edible purple-black berries. Due to their outstandingly high anthocyanin concentration being correlated with high antioxidant activities, the interest in the berries as a healthy coloring foodstuff or additive has significantly increased. However, the fruits were often presumed to be classified as novel food, even though their consumption in Europe is well documented since the end of the 19th century. According to these reports, berries were consumed fresh, as juice or jams, but mostly applied for coloring wine"
