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.
