Lycopene Atom Carotenoid Guava - China

price: contact company for price

Lycopene CAS #:13739-02-1 Molecular formula: C40H56 Molecular

weight:536.88 Formulation:darkred powder Purity: 6%~99% Lycopene is a

member of the carotenoid family of chemical substances. Lycopene,

similar to other carotenoids, is a natural fat-soluble pigment (red, in

the case of lycopene) found in certain plants and microorganisms, where

it serves as an accessory light-gathering pigment and to protect these

organisms against the toxic effects of oxygen and light. Lycopene may

also protect humans against certain disorders, such as prostate cancer

and perhaps some other cancers, and coronary heart disease. Carotenoids

are the principal pigments responsible for the colors of vegetables and

fruits (see Beta-Carotene and Lutein and Zeaxanthin). Lycopene is

responsible for the red color of red tomatoes. In addition to tomatoes

(Lycopersicon esculentum) and tomato-based products, such as ketchup,

pizza sauce, tomato juice and tomato paste, lycopene is also found in

watermelon, papaya, pink grapefruit and pink guava. Processed tomato

products are more available dietary sources of lycopene than fresh

tomatoes. The average daily intake of lycopene is approximately 25

milligrams, with 50% of this in the form of processed tomato products.

Lycopene is an acyclic isomer of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene, which

contains beta-ionone rings at each end of the molecule, is formed in

plants, including tomatoes, via the action of the enzyme lycopene beta-

cyclase. Lycopene is a 40 carbon atom, open chain polyisoprenoid with 11

conjugated double bonds.
