Carotenoids Volume 5: Nutrition and Health © 2009 Birkhäuser Verlag Basel Chapter 2 Analysis of Carotenoids in Nutritional Studies Frederick Khachik A. Introduction The ability to establish a statistically sound relationship between dietary intake of carotenoids and the incidence of chronic disease requires detailed knowledge of the qualitative and quantitative distribution of these compounds in the food supply as well as in human blood, major organs, and tissues. The occurrence and distribution of nutritionally important carotenoids in foods, especially fruits and vegetables, is surveyed in Chapter 3 and the distribution of carotenoids in human blood, organs and tissues is covered in Chapter 7.

This may be due to the unusual linear shape and rigidity of the carotenoid molecules, which strongly influence the ability of carotenoids to enter the pores and interact with the alkyl chains of the stationary phase. In most HPLC of carotenoids ambient temperature is used and small variations are neglected. Temperature can have a significant effect, however, especially on RP systems [9, 17]. In particular, temperature can strongly influence recognition of different shapes of molecules because the bonded alkyl chains of the RP stationary phase are more rigid at lower temperatures.
