	%X Pomegranate and pomegranate juices (PJs) have taken
great attention for their health benefits in the last years. As there is an
increasing concern about potential health benefits of ellagic acid, it is
of great interest to evaluate alterations in ellagic acid concentration of
commercial PJs. The purpose of this study is to analyze total
phenolic, free and total ellagic acid content of six commercial PJs
sold in Turkish markets using HPLC.
The results showed that some commercial PJs had markedly high
total phenolic and ellagic acid content. Total phenolic substances of
commercial PJs range from 796.71 to 4608.91 mg GAE/l. Free
amount of ellagic acid in commercial PJs range from 27.64 to 111.78
mg/l. Samples are hydrolyzed with concentrated HCl at 93oC for 2
and 24 hour and influences of temperature and time parameters on
hydrolization were investigated. Thermal processing for
pasteurization increased ellagic acid via ellagitannins hydrolysis.
