Furthermore, samples differing manifestly in their phosphorus content indicated that enhancing the starch phosphate resulted in significant increases in the swelling power, peak viscosity and breakdown and significant but small increases in the onset and peak temperatures of gelatinisation. Other starch quality parameters, such as the amylose content, median granule size and the gelatinisation enthalpy, did not change significantly due to the degree of phosphate substitution of starch. The amylose of potato starches Solanaceae had a negative correlation with the peak viscosity (PV) and breakdown (BD) and a positive correlation with the setback viscosity (SV) and peak viscosity temperature (PVT) (Zaidul et al.

This accumulation was inhibited by the sterol synthesis inhibitor, tridemorph, and was thus due to synthesis de novo. Concomitant to the accumulation of glycoalkaloids, there was an increase in the specific activity of a glycoalkaloid-specific enzyme, UDP-glucose:solanidine glucosyltransferase (solanidine-GT). Other sterol-metabolizing enzymes S-adenosyl-L-methionine:cycloartenol methyltransferase (cycloartenol-MT) exhibited different time-course curves. Addition of ethephon or tridemorph inhibited the accumulation of sterols and sterol precursors in potato tuber discs (Bergenstråhle et al.

1998b). Similarly, PCA showed that there were close correlations between the tuber skin and flesh components. The major flavonoids in the skin and flesh were catechin, epicatechin, eriodictyol and naringin. Two acylated pelargonidin glycosides were isolated from red tubers of an anthocyanin-rich tetraploid potato (hybrid seedlings between cultivars of Solanum tuberosum and S. andigena) (Naito et al. 1998). In cultivars with less coloured potato tubers, the developing tubers remained white for a longer time, with anthocyanin concentrations increasing gradually up to a maximum at a certain tuber weight depending on the cultivar (Lewis et al.
