I have observed that when you solar bake green bitter gourd vegetable using plain glass jar on a parabolic solar cooker, skin of the vegetable slowly turns to light white color from its original green color skin.
Can you please explain why direct sun rays/sun heat falling on the green vegetables change its color ? Do we loose any food value ?
hoping for a response,

It's nice to hear from you again.
I hope all is well with you.
That is a great question, and I am not sure I have the perfect answer, but I think I can find out some more information in order to answer your question, but it will take me a bit of research.
* I would like to put this question out there to our other site visitors to see if maybe they might have some helpful information and then I will get back to this question with what I am able to find.
