Beta-carotene is an antioxidant that has detoxification effect and is an indispensable nutrient for maintaining human health. It has significant functions in anti-cancer, prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cataracts and anti-oxidation, and thus prevents aging and aging. A variety of degenerative diseases.
Beta-carotene can be converted to vitamin A after entering the body. Excessive intake of vitamin A in the body can cause poisoning, and the body converts beta-carotene to vitamin A only when needed. This feature makes β-carotene a safe source of vitamin A, and there is no cumulative poisoning of vitamin A due to overfeeding.

Common beta-carotene products are: crystalline, 30% oil suspension, 10% water soluble dry powder, 1% water soluble suspension and 1.5% water soluble powder.
Since pure products are generally easily oxidized, they are used most with 30% oil suspension. In addition, water-soluble products are easy to use and are therefore used in beverages.

As a kind of edible oil-soluble pigment, Beta-carotene can be covered by all the colors from red to yellow due to the difference in concentration. Therefore, it is quite warmly welcomed by the food industry. It is very suitable for the development of oily products and protein products, such as margarine, capsules, fish paste products, vegetarian products, and the color of instant noodles. The microcapsule-treated Beta-carotene can be converted into a water-soluble pigment, and almost all foods can be applied. In addition, Beta-carotene has important uses in feed, cosmetics and the like.

It can be used in combination with vitamin C in juice to improve stability.

Beta-carotene is a precursor of VA in nature and can be converted to VA in humans. Due to the lack of VA, it will cause night blindness. Ingestion will cause poisoning. In addition, only β-carotene in nature will be converted into VA when it is needed by the human body. It is the safest way to supplement vitamin A.
The ratio of beta-carotene converted to VA in the human body is controlled by the human VA state. When the amount of VA in the body is sufficient to meet the metabolic needs of the body, β-carotene will be stored in the body, and when the VA in the body is insufficient, it will be released to the body for metabolism, and will be converted into VA in time. VA maintains eye and skin health and improves night blindness and rough skin.
