Beta -Carotene in some vegetables


, : Beta -Carotene in some vegetables. Medecine et Nutrition 30(6): 314-315

beta -Carotene was estimated in samples of fresh and processed vegetables. It ranged from 9.9 mg/100 g 21.5 mg/100 g in puree of deep frozen carrots; large cooked carrots had 13.2 mg/100 g. Canned, deep frozen and fresh spinach had 7.6, 6.8 and 5.0 mg/100 g, respectively.

The effectiveness of beta-carotene (betaC) as a vitamin A (VA) precursor may be influenced by the proportions of cis isomers of betaC consumed in the diet. Although the metabolic fates of cis isomers of betaC are poorly understood, their retinol e...
