Five different colored carrots were analyzed for their carotenoid profile and underwent sensory evaluation to determine consumer acceptance (n = 96). Four major carotenoids were identified and quantified by use of HPLC methods. High beta-carotene orange carrots were found to contain the greatest concentration of total carotenoids. Except for the white, all the carrots are a significant source of bioavailable carotenoids. Sensory evaluation showed the high beta-carotene orange and white carrots… Expand
Comparing carotene, anthocyanins, and terpenoid concentrations in selected carrot lines of different colors
Plant pigments such as anthocyanins and carotenoids have been shown to be beneficial to human health. Therefore, carrot lines of different colors have been recently developed. This study aimed toExpand
Polyacetylene diversity and bioactivity in orange market and locally grown colored carrots (Daucus carota L.).
Deep Purple carrot had the highest polyacetylene content and other important antioxidant phytochemicals and other potential anti-inflammatory phytochemistryicals in colored carrots among the varieties tested during the selected growing season. Expand
Carotenoids in Carrot
The knowledge of the mechanisms involved in carotenoid biosynthesis and accumulation in this vegetable has remained scarce until recently and recent advances in this field are reviewed. Expand
Characterisation of Carrots of Various Root Colour
The obtained results show valuable traits of coloured carrots, which are novel to European market, but also indicate on the need for the improvement of several characteristics of this crop before commercialization. Expand
In this study investigated the factors affecting the changes in carotenoid levels in carrots which are rich in vitamins, minerals, pulp, antioxidants and carotoneids. Nowadays, increasing interest inExpand
Evaluation of different coloured carrot cultivars on antioxidative capacity based on their carotenoid and phenolic contents
Five new carrot cultivars with a conventional cultivar were compared in consideration of their content of carotenoids, phenolics and according antioxidative capacity, finding higher values for the purple-coloured cultivars in 2004, which only in the case of the purple cultivar with an orange core led to a higher antioxidants capacity.

Content of carotenoids in roots of seventeen cultivars of Daucus carota L.
The highest content of carotenoids was found in cultivars: 'Korund F(1)' (48 mg/100g of fresh weight) and 'Salsa F(2)', and the antioxidant properties of selected cultivars were compared using the DPPH method. Expand
[The content of bioactive compounds in carrots from organic and conventional production in the context of health prevention].
Evaluating the level of bioactive compounds in organic and conventional carrot roots showed that organic carrots contained significantly more dry matter, vitamin C, phenolic acids and carotenoids in comparison to the conventional ones. Expand
Antioxidant phytochemicals and antioxidant capacity of biofortified carrots (Daucus carota L.) of various colors.
Purple-yellow carrots had the highest antioxidant capacity, followed by purple-orange carrots, and the other carrots did not significantly differ, which may help horticulturists develop carrots with higher antioxidant capacity. Expand
Phytochemical and antioxidative potential of orange, red, yellow, rainbow and black coloured tropical carrots (Daucus carota subsp. sativus Schubl. & Martens)
Overall, within different colour group, the extent of variation for various phytochemical content and antioxidant potentiality is narrow; but at the same time, the genotypic variability across genotypes is too wide, an indication of broad genetic base of carrot germplasm. Expand
