Beta-Carotene: A Healthy, Versatile Food Product Ingredient

January 13, 2010: 12:48 AM EST
The colorful, oil-soluble antioxidant family known as carotenoids, especially beta-carotene, are not only healthy food ingredients, they are versatile as well, according to this Food Product Design article. Daily servings of beta-carotene-rich fruits and vegetables cut the risk of heart disease or cancer. In addition, beta-carotene has various attractive properties – good stability, for example – making it very useful in a wide array of food applications, including as a vibrant colorant. The article cautions food makers, however, about calling beta-carotene “natural,” because federal rules are very specific about how that term can be applied.
