BACKGROUND Phytoene is a tomato carotenoid that may contribute to the apparent health benefits of tomato consumption. Although phytoene is a less prominent tomato carotenoid than lycopene, it is a major carotenoid in various human tissues. Phytoene distribution to plasma lipoproteins and tissues differs from lycopene, suggesting the kinetics of phytoene and lycopene differ. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to characterize the kinetic parameters of phytoene absorption, distribution… 
Comparison of the bioavailability and intestinal absorption sites of phytoene, phytofluene, lycopene and β-carotene.
TLDR
Phytofluene presented a significantly higher bioavailability compared to lycopene and β-carotene and tended to be more important in the distal intestine, which did not correlate with the proximal expression of both Scarb1 and CD36.
Assessment of Food Sources and the Intake of the Colourless Carotenoids Phytoene and Phytofluene in Spain
TLDR
Considering the color of the edible part of the foods analyzed (fruit, vegetables, sauces, and beverages), the major contributor to the daily intake of PT and PTF (about 98%) were of red/orange color.
An Overview of Carotenoids, Apocarotenoids, and Vitamin A in Agro-Food, Nutrition, Health, and Disease.
TLDR
In this review, the importance of carotenoids and key derivatives (retinoids with VA activity) in agro-food with relevance to health is summarized and the European Network to Advance Carotenoid Research and Applications in Agro-Food and Health (EUROCAROTEN) is introduced.
Bioactivity and bioavailability of phytoene and strategies to improve its production
Phytoene is a valuable colourless carotenoid, which is used as an ingredient in nutraceuticals as well as in cosmetic products. Its use in formulations has several advantages over other carotenoids
Whey- and Soy Protein Isolates Added to a Carrot-Tomato Juice Alter Carotenoid Bioavailability in Healthy Adults
TLDR
The results suggest that a well-digestible protein could enhance carotenoid bioavailability, whereas the less digestible SPI results in negative effects.
Identification of an Epoxide Metabolite of Lycopene in Human Plasma Using 13C-Labeling and QTOF-MS
TLDR
LC-QTOF-MS was used along with 13C-labeling to investigate the post-prandial oxidative metabolism of lycopene in human plasma, and a Lycopene 1,2-epoxide was identified as a new candidate oxidative metabolite.
Intrinsic and Extrinsic Factors Impacting Absorption, Metabolism, and Health Effects of Dietary Carotenoids.
TLDR
To most effectively investigate carotenoid bioactivity and to utilize blood or tissue carotENoid concentrations as biomarkers of intake, investigators should either experimentally or statistically control for confounding variables affecting the bioavailability, tissue distribution, and metabolism of carotene and xanthophyll species.
The colourless carotenoids phytoene and phytofluene: From dietary sources to their usefulness for the functional foods and nutricosmetics industries
TLDR
The aim of this review is to summarize much of the research carried out on these carotenoids, highlighting their potential in the context of functional foods and the related area of nutricosmetics.
From carotenoid intake to carotenoid blood and tissue concentrations – implications for dietary intake recommendations
TLDR
Suggestions for a “normal,” safe, and desirable range of concentrations that presumably are beneficial for health are proposed.
Biomarkers of carotenoid bioavailability.
TLDR
Overall, both host-related and methodological factors may influence analytical and functional markers to assess carotenoid bioavailability although the different subclasses ofcarotenoids may not be equally affected.

Nutritional aspects of phytoene and phytofluene, carotenoid precursors to lycopene.
TLDR
Methods for producing isotopically labeled PE, PF, and LYC tracers from tomato plant cell culture offer a unique tool for further understanding the differential bioavailability and metabolism of these 3 prominent tomato carotenoids and how they may affect health.
Chemistry, Distribution, and Metabolism of Tomato Carotenoids and Their Impact on Human Health
TLDR
The complete spectrum of carotenoids was identified and quantified from pooled human retinal pigment epithelium, ciliary body, iris, lens, and in the uveal tract and in other tissues of the human eye to gain a better insight into the metabolic pathways of ocular carotanoids.
Differential bioavailability, clearance, and tissue distribution of the acyclic tomato carotenoids lycopene and phytoene in mongolian gerbils.
TLDR
LYC and PE, which structurally differ only by saturation, pharmacokinetically differ in bioavailability, tissue deposition, and clearance, suggest PE was more bioavailable and cleared more slowly than LYC.
Phytoene, Phytofluene, and Lycopene from Tomato Powder Differentially Accumulate in Tissues of Male Fisher 344 Rats.
TLDR
Results indicate that the relative tomato carotenoid biodistribution differs in liver and androgen-sensitive tissues, suggesting that minor changes in the number of sequential double bonds in carotanoid structures alter absorption and/or metabolism of tomato carOTenoids.
Compartmental and noncompartmental modeling of ¹³C-lycopene absorption, isomerization, and distribution kinetics in healthy adults.
TLDR
C-Lycopene combined with physiologic compartmental modeling provides a strategy for following complex in vivo metabolic processes in humans and reveals that postabsorptive trans-to-cis-lycopene isomerization, and not the differential bioavailability of isomers, drives tissue and plasma enrichment of cis-ly copene.
Contribution of violaxanthin, neoxanthin, phytoene and phytofluene to total carotenoid intake: Assessment in Luxembourg
TLDR
While intake in Luxembourg appears to be comparable to other European data, this study highlights the importance of taking less frequently analysed carotenoids into account for determining total intake.
Genetic ablation of carotene oxygenases and consumption of lycopene or tomato powder diets modulate carotenoid and lipid metabolism in mice.
TLDR
Data point to the pleiotropic actions of CMO-I and C MO-II supporting a strong role of these proteins in regulating tissue carotenoid accumulation and the lipid metabolic phenotype as well as tomato carotanoid-independent regulation of lipid metabolism.
Plasma appearance of labeled beta-carotene, lutein, and retinol in humans after consumption of isotopically labeled kale.
TLDR
A positive relationship was observed between baseline plasma retinol levels and [13C]retinol plasma response, and it is possible that this relationship was mediated either through some aspect of beta-carotene absorption or via the common pathways of metabolism for postdose and endogenous retinoid.
Chronic ingestion of lycopene-rich tomato juice or lycopene supplements significantly increases plasma concentrations of lycopene and related tomato carotenoids in humans.
TLDR
Lycopene appears to be equally bioavailable from tomato juice and the supplements used in this study, and concentrations of plasma lycopene and other carotenoids with potential for enhancing human health can be increased by ingestion of realistic amounts of tomato juice.
Enhanced bioavailability of lycopene when consumed as cis-isomers from tangerine compared to red tomato juice, a randomized, cross-over clinical trial.
TLDR
Lycopene is markedly more bioavailable from tangerine than from red tomato juice, consistent with a predominance of cis-lycopenes isomers and presence in chromoplasts in a lipid dissolved globular state, which justifies using tangerines as a lycopene source in studies examining the potential health benefits of lycopenes-rich foods.
