  1. Analyses were carried out at 5 time points (60 and 110DAF, H: harvest, 1 M and 2 M: i.e.,1 and 2 months of cold storage). Starch and non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) are expressed as a percentage of AIM dry weight (alcohol insoluble material). Sugars, acetyl and methyl ester contents are expressed as a percentage of NSP. DM: degree of methyesterification. *: significant differences between 60 DAF and 2 M with p < 0.0001
