Among the food plants, red onion is extraordinary containing four Cy4′-glucosides (21) in their pigmented scales (Fossen et al. 2003a), while the alatanins isolated from edible purple yam (Dioscorea alata) (Yoshida et al. 1991) and one of the pigments (19) in tamarillo (Solanum betaceum) (Osorio et al. 3). The various mono-, di-, and trisaccharides found in anthocyanins are formed by glucosyl, galactosyl, rhamnosyl, arabinosyl, xylosyl, glucuronosyl, and apiosyl units. One or more glucosyl units have been identified in more than 90% of the various anthocyanins, while the most unusual glycosyl unit of anthocyanins, apiosyl, is hitherto found limited to five anthocyanins in the African milk bush (Synadenium grantii) (Andersen and Jordheim 2010).
