Absorptions, metabolic cycles and accumulations of carotenoid pigments
differ according to the fish species.
[6.] Shahidi F, Metusalach A, Brown JA (1998) Carotenoid pigments
in seafoods and aquaculture.
In previous studies, accumulation of carotenoid pigments
was detected in the orange inner leaves, including prolycopene, lutein, proneurosporene, pro-[xi]-carotene, [xi]-carotene, 9-cis-b-carotene, [beta]-carotene, and neurosporene [9-11, 15].
Carrots, peppers and sweet |potato: Beta-carotene, an antioxidant vitamin present in orange veg, and other carotenoid pigments
have been shown to enhance immune function.
The traits that had undergone a change during domestication included a large taproot with a reduction in lateral branches and the most important of all is the accumulation of carotenoid pigments
that is involved in imparting different colours to the carrot.
(2005) noted that carotenoid pigments
were more sensitive to gamma rays than chlorophylls.
Many flowers and fruit present yellow, orange and red colors due carotenoid pigments
. Other less obvious roles make carotenoids essential components in oxygenic photosynthetic organisms.
The rapid determination of algal chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments
and their breakdown products in natural waters by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography.
In a research effects of marine algae Dunaliellasalinainc luding [beta]-caroten and Red yeast phafiarhodozyma including astaxanthin on the nonspecific defense mechanisms of rainbow trout, by Amar et al  was indicated that carotenoid pigments
resulted serum complement and lysosyme activity increased and consequently total lococyte and phagocytosisincreased .
Both firms manufacture feed and food carotenoid pigments
, anti-caking agents and mold inhibitors.
has announced the acquisitions of IQF Group of Spain and IQF-ENAMEX of Mexico, both producers of natural carotenoid pigments
, essential oils, anti-caking agents as well as mold inhibitors.
26 May 2010 - Novus International, Inc., a leading animal health and nutrition firm, yesterday announced that it acquired the IQF Group, a Spanish producer of natural carotenoid pigments
, essential oils, and other products for the feed industry, as well as a range of human health products under its IQF Nutrition division.
Thus, low ratios in this treatment may be related to the progressive decrease of carotenoid pigments
(Table 1); this decrease could be a non-enzymatic first line of defense against the pro-oxidant activity of ROS.
Although other areas of the eye contain significant amounts of specific carotenoid pigments
The second section, covering bio-based industry products, offers 17 chapters on products such as biotechnological production and properties of carotenoid pigments
, marine functional ingredients and advanced technology for health food development, and biological synthesis of metal nanoparticles.
