Enhanced antioxidant formula based on a selenium-supplemented carotenoid-producing yeast biomass



Enhanced antioxidant formula based on a selenium-supplemented carotenoid-producing yeast biomass



Chemistry and Biodiversity 5(3): 440-446



Carotenoid-producing yeast species such as Rhodotorula glutinis and Sporobolomyces roseus efficiently accumulated selenium from the growth medium. It was observed that incorporation of selenium into yeast cells during the growth inhibited production of beta-carotenoid and other carotenoid precursors (torularhodin and torulene). The yeasts with high content of the carotenoid pigments and selenium may be used for the preparation of a new type of antioxidant formula that could be directly applied for various human and animal diets. We have demonstrated that such a formula can only be produced by separate processes of the cultivation of red yeasts and a subsequent sorption of selenium into the cells.
