Abstract:Ackee (Blighia sapida K. D. Koenig) is an exotic fruit widely consumed in the Caribbean countries.

A clear reduction in hypoglycin A, ascorbic acid, and t… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
