Abstract:

The blackening of fresh green pepper (Piper nigrum) berries was found to be due to the enzyme—catalysed oxidation of 3,4-dihydroxy phenylethanol glycoside by an o-diphenol oxidase present in the fruit. The enzyme was also found to be active towards the aglycone of 3,4-dihydroxy phenylethanol glycoside.
