Event Title

Chemical Composition and Nutritional value of fresh strawberry fruit (Fragaria x ananassa)

Session

Food Science and Technology

Description

Strawberries are appreciated and important in our diet for their sensory and nutritional characteristics because of their high content of essential nutrients is beneficial for biological activity in human health. The aim of this research was to analysis some chemical parameter of five strawberry fresh samples from plantation in Kosovo area at the ripe stage. The parameters analyzed with different analytical methods (refractometry,spectrophotometry,GC-ECD combined with ultrasonic bath extraction and a Florisil column for samples clean-up) are:pH,soluble solids,titratable acidity,vitamin C,calcium,magnesium,iron and pesticide residues including organochloride, organophosphate and other pesticides in fruit and vegetables. Results showed that the strawberries were in conformity with the relevant legislation and did not contain detectable pesticide residues there are safe and healthier. It is difficult to come to conclusions, but what should be made clear to the consumer is that organic does not automatically equal safe. In the absence of adequate comparative data, additional studies in this area of research are required. All statistical analyses will be performed using the SPSS version 17.0 software packages.
