Abstract

Eight cultivars of potato were baked in a microwave oven. The flavour components of the flesh were isolated by headspace trapping onto Tenax and analysed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Lipid degradation and the Maillard reaction and/or sugar degradation were the main sources of the 80 flavour components identified. It is suggested that total levels of compounds and variations among their profiles may be attributed to differences in activities of lipid enzymes and levels of flavour precursors in the range of cultivars investigated.
