- ... Corms, tepals and leaves of saffron are by-products generated during the processing of the stigmas of the flower (saffron spice). To increase the overall profitability of this crop, these by-products have been investigated as a potential source of antioxidant compounds. With this purpose, several in vitro antioxidant methods, such as the Î²-carotene/linoleate model system, reducing power, DPPH and ...

- ... A major constraint limiting saffron cultivation is the difficulty of obtaining high quality corms for propagation. There is limited knowledge about the physiology of vegetative development of saffron. The aim of this work was to analyse the relative contribution of different carbon sources (leaf photosynthetic activity and mother corm reserves) to the growth of vegetative organs and to analyse the ...
