Carotenoids: Properties, Processing and Applications

  • ID: 4768614
  • Book
  • October 2019
  • 385 Pages
  • Elsevier Science and Technology

Carotenoids: Properties, Processing, and Applications fills the gap of transfer knowledge between academia and industry, covering integral information in three critical dimensions: properties, recovery and applications. At the moment, carotenoid research is directed at particular applications, including colorants, antioxidants and recovery from plant processing by-products. These trends take into account the health, nutrition and functions of carotenoids, the new recovery efforts from underutilized sources, the extraction procedures using green solvents and technologies, and their sustainability aspects.

Written by a team of experts in the field of food chemistry, food science and technology, as well as bioresource technologists mainly from academia, the book covers the most recent advances in the field of carotenoids, while also analyzing the potential of already commercialized processes and products.

  • Covers carotenoids' properties in view of alternative sources (plant by-products, microalgae, etc.), recovery technologies and applications
  • Thoroughly explores mechanistic aspects, dietary intake and recommendations surrounding the health-promoting effects of carotenoids
  • Discusses the effect of processing and storage conditions in carotenoid levels and bioavailability
  • Presents applications and case studies in the food industry
