Sammendrag

Greenhouse grown tomatoes, cvs ?Durinta?, ?Favorita? and ?Liberto?, were harvested green and vine ripe. Colour measurements and chemical analyses were performed on green, post-harvest red and vine-ripe fruits. Partial Least Square regression (PLS) was applied to predict the Ferric Reducing Ability ofPlasma (FRAP) by means of colour measurements (L*, a*, b*). The PLS showed that 78% of the variation in colour were able to predict 74% of the variation in FRAP value. Chemical variables and colour variables together were able to predict 88% of the variation in FRAP by means of PLS regression. Linear regression showed a high negative correlation between high values of L*, b* and FRAP, and a high positive correlation between titratable acidity, a*, hue,a*/b*, soluble solids, vitamin C, dry matter and FRAP values. Thus, colour measurements of intact tomatoes can be used as a non-destructive method to assess total antioxidant capacity of tomatoes.
