Carotenoids Functionality, Sources, and Processing by Supercritical Technology: A Review
Journal of Chemistry
Carotenoid is a group of pigments naturally present in vegetal raw materials that have biological properties. These pigments have been used mainly in food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. Currently, the industrial production is executed through chemical synthesis, but natural alternatives of carotenoid production/attainment are in development. The carotenoid extraction occurs generally with vegetal oil and organic solvents, but supercritical technology is an alternative technique todoi:10.1155/2016/3164312 fatcat:gbgjdoutznhvhc25h5ichgliji
