dc.description.abstractThe constantly increasing demand for natural products is paralleled by a more pronounced request for natural ingredients and health promoting foods. Cactus Pear was largely ignored by the scientific world until beginning of 1980 but due to multifunctionality of the plant it is now considered as an important crop to human food in all its aspects.
