Beta-carotene (C40H56), one of the carotenoids, is an orange-colored, fat-soluble compound that is the most prevalent and stable natural pigment found in nature. It is a member of the family of natural chemicals (e.g. carotenoids or carotenoid). It is found in large quantities in plants and gives fruits and vegetables their full yellow and orange color. The pure product has a reddish-purple to dark red crystalline powder appearance with a slightly peculiar odor. Dilute solutions of β-carotene are orange-yellow in color and easily soluble in organic solvents such as methylene chloride, chloroform, and carbon disulfide. When the concentration of the solution increases, it is orange, and can be slightly red due to the polarity of the solvent. Unstable with oxygen, heat and light. More stable in weak bases.
β-carotene is widely used in food industry, feed industry, medicine and cosmetic industry. The methods used to obtain β-carotene are natural substance extraction, chemical synthesis and microbial fermentation.
