Recent progress in the measurement of the bioconversion of dietary provitamin A carotenoids to vitamin A is reviewed in this article. Methods to assess the bioavailability and bioconversion of provitamin A carotenoids have advanced significantly in the past 10 y, specifically through the use of stable isotope methodology, which includes the use of labeled plant foods. The effects of the food matrix on the bioconversion of provitamin A carotenoids to vitamin A, dietary fat effects, and the… CONTINUE READING
