We reported previously that lysophosphatidylcholine remarkably enhanced β-carotene uptake from bile acid-mixed micelles by human intestinal Caco-2 cells. In the present study, we evaluated how mixed micelle components other than phospholipids, viz., fatty acids, monoolein, and cholesterol, affect carotenoid uptake by Caco-2 cells. Each component influenced the β-carotene uptake in a different way depending on micellar composition. Oleic acid at 200 µM significantly enhanced uptake in the… CONTINUE READING
