Abstract

Carotenoids are one of the most widespread groups of naturally occurring pigments, biosynthesized by all photosynthetic bacteria, fungi, algae and higher plants. In recent years, there has been a considerable interest in the dietary carotenoids due to their pro-vitamin A activity, high antioxidant potential, ability to prevent onset of certain cancers as well as age related macular degeneration. Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) fruit and its processed products are principal sources of lycopene and important sources of β-carotene.
