About Beta-Carotene

 β-Carotene, a carotenoid molecule naturally found in many green leafy and yellow plants, is a fat soluble, yellow-orange pigment with two major functions:

  • Fortification – ProVitamin A source. In this role, it provides the body with safe levels of Vitamin A that support immune function, eye, skin and cardiovascular health. It also demonstrates strong antioxidant properties.
  • Color – Beta carotene serves as a stable, non-certified or natural, colorant providing yellow to orange colors in food and beverages.

Divi’s Beta-Carotene Portfolio

  • Two types of active ingredients
    • Nature-Identical Beta-Carotene (synthetic)
    • Natural Beta-Carotene (source – Blakeslea Trispora)
  • Product forms – spray dried powders, microencapsulated beadlets, liquid suspensions, solutions and emulsions
  • Matrix (or carrier) variation in each product form supports specific application functions – water soluble, oil soluble and dry blends.
