Beta-carotene is one of a group of red, orange, and yellow pigments called carotenoids. Beta-carotene and other carotenoids provide approximately 50% of the vitamin A needed in the American diet. Beta-carotene can be found in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. It can also be made in a laboratory.
Beta-Carotene is the substance in carrots that colors them orange and is the most common form of carotene in plants. When used as a food coloring, it has the E number E160a.The structure was deduced by Karrer et al. in 1930. In nature, β-carotene is a precursor (inactive form) to vitamin A via the action of beta-carotene 15,15′-monooxygenase. Isolation of β-carotene from fruits abundant in carotenoids is commonly done using column chromatography. The separation of β-carotene from the mixture of other carotenoids is based on the polarity of a compound. β-Carotene is a non-polar compound, so it is separated with a non-polar solvent such as hexane. Being highly conjugated, it is deeply colored, and as a hydrocarbon lacking functional groups, it is very lipophilic
Beta-carotene is used for an inherited disorder marked by sensitivity to light (erythropoietic protoporphyria or EPP). It is also used to prevent certain cancers, heart disease, cataracts, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
In addition to serving as a dietary source of provitamin A, beta carotene functions as an antioxidant. Antioxidants are compounds that neutralize unstable molecules called free radicals. When free-radical numbers get too high in the body, causing an imbalance, it leads to cellular and tissue damage, known as oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is a known contributor to the development of certain chronic diseases. Antioxidants like beta carotene help reduce or prevent oxidative stress in the body.
Plenty of research shows that diets rich in antioxidants can boost health.
By reducing oxidative stress in the body, antioxidants may help protect against conditions such as: certain cancers,heart disease,cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s disease.
