BACKGROUND Studies of adult subjects have found a strong correlation between serum carotenoids and skin carotenoids measured by resonance Raman spectroscopy (RRS). No published studies have examined correlations between skin and serum carotenoids among children. OBJECTIVES We aimed to validate skin RRS methodology against serum carotenoid measurements by high-performance liquid chromatography and to determine whether RRS can be used as a valid biomarker of fruit and vegetable (F/V) intake… CONTINUE READING
