The objectives of this study were to evaluate the bioavailability of crystalline lutein supplements and compare lutein uptake and clearance in humans simultaneously supplemented with either vitamin C or E. The design was an intervention in which area under the curve (AUC) of lutein was compared with and without each of the supplements. Blood samples were(More)
Beta-carotene is a predominant source of vitamin A in developing countries. Genetically selected "high carotene" carrots could have an impact on the vitamin A and antioxidant status of people if widely adopted. A 3 x 3 crossover study in humans (n = 10) evaluated the difference in uptake and clearance of alpha- and beta-carotene from carrots genetically(More)
Vitamin A (VA) deficiency is a worldwide public health problem. Biofortifying existing sources of b-carotene (bC) and increasing dietary bC could help combat the issue. Two studies were performed to investigate the relative bC bioavailability of a bC supplement to purple, high-bC orange, and typical orange carrots using Mongolian gerbils (Meriones(More)
Vitamin A (VA) deficiency is a worldwide public health problem. Biofortifying existing sources of beta-carotene (betaC) and increasing dietary betaC could help combat the issue. Two studies were performed to investigate the relative betaC bioavailability of a betaC supplement to purple, high-betaC orange, and typical orange carrots using Mongolian gerbils(More)
