Possible Interaction: Carotenoids and Pectin





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The major fibre in fruits and vegetables, pectin , however also decreases the bioavailability of phenolics and carotenoids.
Food & function  •  2020  |  View Paper
Alginates, carboxy-methylcelluloses, and methylcelluloses inhibited β-carotene uptake mainly by increasing medium viscosity, but pectins might inhibit carotenoid uptake by additional mechanisms.
Medium- and high-viscosity alginates and pectins inhibited carotenoid micellization and cellular uptake relative to the fiber-free control.

In relation to the TRS meal, adding either vegetable oils or fiber (oat bran, wheat bran, and pectin ) significantly decreased the micellarization of carotenoids to varying degrees.
