Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This chapter provides an overview of the challenges associated with accurate analysis of phenolic compounds from foods, dietary supplements, and other matrices. It discusses the significance of sample preparation, post-harvest processing, and storage conditions on the assay of phenolic phytochemicals. This chapter is divided into three sections: 1) changes in phenolics during postharvest storage, and processing, 2) influence of extraction techniques and conditions, and 3) analytical techniques used for qualitative and quantitative analysis of phenolic compounds.
