  1. Analyses were carried out by colorimetric analyses at 5 time points (60 and 110DAF, H: harvest, 1 M and 2 M: i.e.,1 and 2 months of cold storage) on samples released after sequential treatments with water (water-soluble, WS), pectinases (pectinase-soluble, PS), mannanases, xylanase and finally glucanase. Non-starch polysaccharides content (NSP) are expressed as a percentage of AIM dry weight, uronic acids (UA) and neutral sugars (NS) contents are expressed as a percentage of initial NSP dry weight. a, b, c: significant differences between 60 DAF and H, H and 2 M, 60 DAF and 2 M with p < 0.0001
