If the file has been modified from its original state, some details such as the timestamp may not fully reflect those of the original file. These results indicated the nutritional relevance of fermentation, which can be a promising stabilisation technique for leek. The results of Chapter 9 demonstrate the higher antioxidant capacity and polyphenol content upon fermentation especially in the green leaves.


A slight increase in isoalliin level could be observed after a cool storage period. An obvious increase could be observed in the antioxidant capacity of the steamed green leaves.
