Germinating seeds constitute a natural source of substancesthat can be used to supplement food and increase its functionality.In this work, red mizuna (Brassica rapa L. var. nipposinica)in the form of sprouts was used as research materials.The main goal of this study was to investigate the effect of germinationtime on the phytochemical profile of health-promotingcompounds in red mizuna sprouts. The metabolomic profile ofwater-methanol mizuna sprout extracts was analyzed by UPLCESI-MS/MS. In this work qualitative analysis of four mizunasprout extracts collected after 4, 6, 8 and 11 days after sowingwas carried out. Moreover, the phytochemical characterization ofred mizuna seeds before the sprouting process was undertaken.Thirty-nine compounds were interpreted and the fact of the variabilityof the qualitative profile over time was confirmed. This isthe first report to provide information on the differences in thephytochemical profile between sprouts of red mizuna subjectedto the influence of germination time, in order to determine theharvesting and consumption maturity of the tested plant material.
