Report Code: ZMR-149 | Report Format : | Status : Upcoming |

Abstract

Carotenoids are plant pigments that are accountable for red, yellow, and orange colors in numerous fruits and vegetables. These pigments play an important role in plant health. In addition, people who consume foods with carotenoids gain protective health benefits. Carotenoids are also found in the chloroplasts and chromoplasts of plants and other photosynthetic organisms such as some bacteria and fungi. Carotenoids act as antioxidants within the body, protecting against cellular damage, the effects of aging, and some chronic diseases. They can be assembled from fats and other basic organic metabolic building blocks of these organisms. Carotenoids are responsible for the characteristic colors to carrots, corn, canaries, and daffodils, as well as egg yolks, rutabagas, buttercups, and bananas.As antioxidants, carotenoids are useful for the protection of vision and combating cellular damage.Lycopene, a type of carotenoid found in tomatoes,helps in keeping the liver, prostate, breast, colon, and lungs healthy.

On the basis of oxygen content carotenoids are further segmented as oxygenated carotenoids—those containing oxygen— and unoxygenated—oxygen-free carotenoids. Unoxygenated carotenoids are further sub-segmented as α-carotene, β-carotene, and lycopene.α-carotene is the second most common form of carotene.β-carotene is the most common form of carotene in plants and is used for food coloring.
