    Native fruits are receiving special attention from food researchers all around the world. The Campomanesia xanthocarpa Berg [gabirobeira] is a species native to Brazil, being part of family Myrtaceae. The gabirobeira produces a fruit named gabiroba, whose pulp presents a nice acidic-sweet taste. This work was aimed at evaluating the gabiroba technological potential for use as a raw material for the food industry. The gabiroba pulp was evaluated for its physical-chemical features. In addition, the pectin that was extracted from the pulp was evaluated for its rheological features. The pulp bioactive compounds content, namely vitamin C, flavonoids, phenolics and carotenoids, was measured during 180 days of freezer storage. The pulp antioxidant capacity was measured by means of the DPPH and ABTS methods. The rheological measurements were performed through the use of a Haake .. Read More»
