Fruits and vegetables are good sources of vitamins, minerals and carotenoids. In this study, lutein and zeaxanthin content of selected vegetables and vegetable oils commonly used in the Indian diet have been determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Data generated from this study is vital for the accurate determination of the dietary intake of lutein and development of comprehensive food tables. Among vegetables studied, the lutein level ([mu]g/100gm edible portions) was the highest for pumpkin (10,620), chilli (1,900) and brinjal (eggplant or aubergine) (1,800), respectively. Lutein level varied ranging from 65 to 990
