Abstract

Purine is a general term for purine nucleotides, nucleosides, bases, and nucleic acid. The amount of purine nucleotides, nucleosides, and bases in purine-rich cauliflower was determined with the use of LC-MS and HPLC, and the ratio of these molecules were compared with in raw and in heated condition. Total purine content of raw and heated cauliflower was 42.6 and 43.2 mg/100 g, respectively. Nucleotide content was increased from 0.02 to 50.8 micromol/100 g, and nucleoside content was decreased from 12.4 to 7.7 micromol/100 g, by heating.
