Vitamin A is found in two basic forms, retinol and carotenoids. The carotenoids represent the most widespread group of naturally occurring pigments in nature. They are a highly colored (red & yellow) group of fat soluble compounds, composed of hydrocarbons (carotenes) and their oxygenated derivatives. Over 600 carotenoids have been characterized but only about 30-50 are believed to have vitamin A activity.
Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, gamma-carotene and cryptoxanthin are powerful antioxidant nutrients and possess retinal activity. These carotenoids have been termed the most active of the carotenoids due to its higher provitamin A activity. They are converted into vitamin A by the liver. They are found in plant sources such as carrot, sweet potato.
