In vitro micellarization and intestinal cell uptake of cis isomers of lycopene exceed those of all-trans lycopene.


The ratio of cis and all-trans lycopene (LYC) in human and animal tissues exceeds that in foods. The basis for this difference remains unknown, although differences in their stability, transport, and metabolism have been suggested. Here, we systematically compared the digestive stability, efficiency of micellarization, and uptake and intracellular stability… (More)
