After drying, the dehydrated peels were ground in knife mill to obtain powders and characterized in quadruplicate regarding physical and chemical parameters, namely: moisture content through the standard method of the oven at 105[degrees]C until constant weight, reducing sugars through the method based on the reduction of cupric salts and cuprous oxides present in Fehling solution, total titratable acidity through the acidimetric method, titrating the sample with 0.1 M NaOH solution, and ascorbic acid through the titrimetric method, using 2,6 dichlorophenol-indophenol sodium, according to the methodologies described in the manual of IAL (2008); content of betalains (betacyanins and betaxanthins) according to Lim et al.
In most of the cases, the classical methods are generally focused on chemical groups and also the quantification method by titration such as the acidimetric determination of saponified terpene esters.
