  • Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch) is one of the most economically important fruit crops worldwide. The increasing cultivation areas and the rising consumption of strawberry fruits are associated with its pleasant flavor, taste and texture, as well as with their essential nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidant compounds. The antioxidant properties of strawberry fruits are related to the high content of L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), anthocyanins and phenolic compounds, which have been medically recognized as having positive influences on protecting against the risk of many diseases.
  • The increasing demand of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch) fruits is associated mainly with their sensorial characteristics and the content of antioxidant compounds.[1] [2].
