Details

In the first chapter, Saraid Mora Rochín, PhD, Jorge Milán Carrillo, PhD, and Cuauhtémoc Reyes Moreno, PhD review the function of food carotenoids in oxidative stress-induced human disease prevention. In the second chapter, Andrêssa S. Fernandes, Pricila N. Pinheiro, Mariany C. Deprá, Eduardo Jacob-Lopes, and Leila Q. Zepka discuss the biosynthesis of carotenoids and bioactive caortenoids from microalgae, as well as their applications. Alexis Marsol-Vall, Albert Tomàs, Mercè Balcells, Francisca Vilaró, and Ramon Canela-Garayoa present a study where cuticles of four apple varieties were studied for their carotenoid content in the third chapter. In the fourth chapter, Joanna Igielska-Kalwat reviews the cosmetic applications of carotenoids, including their antiaging properties. (Imprint: Nova)
