Have been evaluated physical, chemical and sensitive properties of the products from strawberry and raspberry. Was determined the content of antioxidants, such as L-hidroascorbic acid, anthocyan, total polyphenols and fruit reducing activity (harvest of years 2003 -2006).
The precision of the characteristics determination for oxid reducing state of fruit samples (K, mg AA/g SU) is obtained with the trust coefficient P= 0,01 or P= 0,05, error limit being +,- (0,2 … 0,8)% from the average values of the indicator K.
The correlation of the total hydrosoluble antioxidants content (ascorbic acid, anthocyan, polyphenols) and the indicator of the fruit oxid reducing state (K), which has values of the Pearson coefficient ® within 0,88 … 1,0 and has a functional dependence. It was proved that depreciation of the final products exterior aspect and the appearance of a brown colour is due to anthocyans and polyphenols degradation and formation of brown composites identified in the spectral UV area of 220…270 nm.
The validity of frozen fruit was demonstrated by means of determining the probability of quality modification of frozen strawberries.
A new technological scheme for manufacture of strawberry confiture is proposed, with a reduced sucrose content and a relevant antioxidants content.
Overall there was developed the composition and technology of jellified products from high quality strawberries having balanced physical and chemical indicators as well as sensitive properties.
