Table 2 below gives an indication of the temperature needed to inactivate some important enzymes. Polyphenoloxidase catalyses two basic reactions: Lowering water activity by adding water-binding chemicals. Freezing-drying when moisture is removed by sublimation the change from solid to gas.

Wikipedia articles needing clarification from February Enzymatic browning is detrimental to quality, particularly in post-harvest storage of fresh fruits, juices and some shellfish. Blanching brightens the colour, softens the texture, but has little effect on nutrient content or flavour as it is a relatively short process.

Refrigeration Refrigeration and chilling are used to prevent spoilage of vegetables enzymatiic fruits during distribution and retailing.

The sugar interacts with the amino acid, producing a variety of odors and flavors. High pressure treatment also called High Pressure Processing HPP is a technique of food processing where food is subjected to elevated pressures atmosphere to achieve microbial and enzyme inactivation. In the food industry this technique is for example applied for white wine and fruit juices.

It begins with the oxidation of phenols by polyphenol oxidase into quinones[4] whose strong electrophilic state causes high susceptibility to a nucleophilic attack from other proteins. It is a chemical reaction that takes place between the amine group of a free amino acid and the carbonyl group of a reducing sugar[1] usually with the addition of heat.


Theaflavin, a polyphenol in tea Source. Theaflavin, a polyphenol in tea Source Polyphenols can be divided into many different sub categories, such as anthocyans colours in fruitsflavonoids catechins, tannins in tea and wine and non-flavonoids components gallic acid in tea leaves.

This could result in off-flavours and loss of texture and colour. High pressure processing causes minimal changes in foods. The most important inhibitors indutry shown in table 3.

Enzymatic browning

Melanosis mainly occurs during postmortem handling and refrigerated storage. They are also present in the wastewater of sugar refineries, necessitating treatment in order to avoid contamination around the outflow of these refineries. Ultrasonic sound waves are able to destroy large molecules by liberating highly reactive radicals from water. Apples are fruits commonly studied by researchers due to their high phenolic content, which make them highly susceptible to enzymatic browning. Enzymatic browning affects the color, flavor, and nutritional value of foods, causing huge economic loss when not sold to consumers on time.

The two main forms of non-enzymatic browning are caramelization and the Maillard reaction. Polyphenoloxidase also occurs in animals and is thought to increase disease resistance in insects and crustaceans.

Browning has many important implications on the food industry relating to nutrition, technology, and economic cost.

: Enzymatic browning

Steam or boiling water blanching is a type of heat treatment for controlling enzymatic browning in canned nidustry frozen fruits and vegetables. It is used extensively in cooking for the desired nutty flavor and brown color.

Blanching Blanching is a short heat treatment to destroy or inactivate enzymes before freezing of products mainly vegetables.

Large amount of inhibitors are applied in food processing depending on the type of product and process. Polyphenoloxidases are a class of enzymes that were first discovered in mushrooms and are widely distributed in nature. Flavonoids are formed in plants from the aromatic amino acids phenylalanine and tyrosine. Retrieved from ” https: Therefore the temperature should be well controlled. The process of browning is one of the chemical reactions that take place in food chemistry and represents an interesting research topic regarding health, nutrition, and food technology.


The reaction is not only dependent on the presence of air, but also on the pH acidity. Both reactions utilize molecular oxygen air as a co-substrate.

Food browning – Wikipedia

The browning of shrimp which is actually referred to as Melanosiscreates a great concern for food handlers and consumers. Inactivation of the enzyme is a result of a decrease in pH caused by production of carbonic acid from carbon dioxide.

During food processing and storage many polyphenols are unstable due to the eznymatic that they undergo chemical and biochemical reactions.

Examples of foods that undergo Maillard reaction include breads, steaks, and potatoes. By drying the enzyme is inhibited, but not destroyed. Lowering of the pH to 4.

The steam blanching is 1. Like most fruit, grapes vary in the amount of phenolic compounds they have. Enzymatic browning also called oxidation of foods requires exposure to oxygen. Enzyme activity may discolour or toughen vegetables during freezing, which results in quality loss.

Food browning

Enzymatic browning is a chemical process which occurs in fruits and vegetables by the enzyme polyphenoloxidase, which results in brown pigments. Polyphenols can be divided into many different sub categories, such as anthocyans colours in fruitsflavonoids catechins, tannins in tea and wine and non-flavonoids components gallic acid in tea leaves.

Compared to thermal processing, HPP results in foods with fresher taste, and better appearance, texture and nutrition.

Treatment with supercritical carbon dioxide SC-CO 2 Supercritical carbon dioxide fluid carbon dioxide at high pressure treatment is mostly applied to destroying micro-organisms but can also be applied for enzyme inactivation, especially for inactivation of PPO in shrimps, lobsters and potatoes.
