Dietary Consumption of Lutein and Zeaxanthin in Panama: A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
The consumption of lutein and zeaxanthin is low among people working at the University of Panama, and this is not associated with sociodemographic variables.
Retention of Pro-vitamin A Carotenoids in Ogi Powder as Affected by Packaging Materials and Storage Conditions
The effect of different packages and storage conditions on the retention of pro-vitamin A carotenoids (pVAC) in ogi powder produced from yellow-seeded maize was investigated to study its storage
Effect of Processing on the Retention of Total Carotenoid, Iron and Zinc Contents of Yellow-fleshed Cassava Roots
BACKGROUND: It was envisaged that processing of yellow-fleshed cassava roots might affect the micronutrient composition. Hence, three yellow-fleshed cassava roots were grown for 12 months in a
Retention of Provitamin A Carotenoids in Staple Crops Targeted for Biofortification in Africa: Cassava, Maize and Sweet Potato
TLDR
The pVAC retention of maize grain and cassava and sweet potato flour reached levels as low as 20% after 1–4 months of storage and was highly dependent on genotype, therefore, it is recommended that an evaluation of the pVac degradation rate among different genotypes be performed before a high pV AC crop is promoted.
Effect of Salt on the Sensory and Keeping Quality of Orange Fleshed Sweetpotato Crisps
The study was carried out to determine the effect of salt on the sensory, nutritive and keeping quality of OFSP crisps. Crisps were made by deep frying slices of approximately 3.5 mm thickness
Effects of Boiling and Frying on the Bioaccessibility of β-Carotene in Yellow-Fleshed Cassava Roots (Manihot Esculenta Crantz cv. BRS Jari)
TLDR
Increased emulsification and bioaccessibility of β-carotene from fried biofortified BRS Jari cassava roots compensates for chemical losses during preparation, indicating that this preparation is suitable for home use of B RS JariCassava roots and might represent a relatively good food source of bioavailable provitamin A.
Influence of Process Conditions on the Physicochemical Properties of Pequi Powder Produced by Spray Drying
Microencapsulation of extract pequi pulp by spray drying, using Arabic gum as a microencapsulating agent, was studied. Tween 80 was used as a secondary emulsifier. A factorial design was conducted

Quantification of Provitamin A Compounds in ChInese Vegetables by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography.
TLDR
The provitamin A contents of 16 vegetables grown in Taiwan were analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography with photodiode-array detection and carrot was the only vegetable found to contain α-carotene while com was the vegetable to contain (β-cryptoxanthin.
CHARACTERIZATION OF CHANGES DURING RIPENING OF ORIENTAL PERSIMMON
Color, firmness, carotenoid content (lycopene, beta-cryptoxanthin, beta-carotene and alpha-carotene) and ascorbic acid content were monitored during ripening of two cultivars of Oriental persimmons.

TLDR
Familiarity, ease of access, trust, and awareness will all be important for the sustained support of this campaign.
Determination of carotenoids in foods by high-performance liquid chromatography.
TLDR
The mean values of alpha and beta-carotene of 10 fruits and vegetables from supermarkets in Cairo and Alexandria have been determined using HPLC method, and the average vitamin A activities calculated, and there was no difference between the analysed values of vitamin A activity and the USDA Handbook No. 8 values.
