Antioxidant capacity and chemical composition of passion fruit peel (Passiflora
Aril removal has been used as promisor method to increase seeds germination with several results in Passiflora
species (Pereira and Dias, 2000; Martins et al., 2006; Osipi et al., 2011; Silva et al., 2015).
(2004) reportaron un total de 95 especies para el genero Passiflora
; pero, en los ultimos anos se han ido adicionando nuevos taxones (Boza 2014, Leiva & Tantalean 2015, 2016).
(2013), evaluating growth, mineral composition and total phenotypes of Passiflora
genotypes as a function of nitrogen sources, concluded that the Passiflora
edulis genotype presented a higher leaf area among the compared genotypes.
Although there are few studies evaluating the use of yellow passion fruit bark (Passiflora
edulis) in the treatment of metabolic syndrome (MS), results available in the literature are promising as a clinical alternative for its use as an adjuvant in the control of metabolic disorders associated with this pathology.
Aiming to evaluate the applicability of the method, samples of Passiflora
alata tinctures were fortified with FEN.

Moreover, a recent study showed that a pectin isolated from fresh peels of Passiflora
glandulosa Cav has hypoglycemic effects in diabetic mice (Sousa et al., 2015).
