Abstract: In this research, the effect of baking on the content of zeaxanthin in corn flour was analyzed. First of all, we explored the effect of baking temperature, baking time and water addition on zeaxanthin content using one-factor-at-a-time method. Next, the three factors were optimized using response surface methodology. The optimized conditions were as follows: baking temperature 190 ℃, baking time 30 min, and water addition at 75%. In three parallel experiments performed under these conditions, the zeaxanthin content in baked corn dough was 306.79 μg/100 g.

Key words: corn flour, baking time, baking temperature, water addition, zeaxanthin
