Abstract

The carotenoid pigments of the ripe and unripe fruits of Asparagus officinalis were investigated by means of an HPLC technique. Capsanthin, capsorubin, capsanthin 5,6-epoxide, antheraxanthin, violaxanthin, neoxanthin, mutatoxanthin epimers, zeaxanthin, lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin, beta-carotene, and some cis isomers were found. Carotenoids with 3,5,6-trihydroxy and 3,6-epoxy beta-end groups could not be deleted.
