Abstract:The present work is focused on examining the factors affecting the transfer of chlorophylls from an oily food matrix to the intestinal epithelial cells during the digestive process. It was studied both chlorophyll a (Chl a) and chlorophyll b (Chl b) as the major chlorophyll derivatives present in processed vegetables common at the diet: pheophytin a (Phy a), pheophytin b (Phy b), pyropheophytin a (Pyphy a), pheophorbide a (Pho a) and pyropheophorbide a (Pypho a).
