Betacarotene is a carotenoid. The carotenoids are divided into two main groups: carotenes and xanthophylls. Carotenes consists of hydrogen and carbon, while xanthophylls additionally contain oxygen atoms. Betacarotene belongs to a group of yellow and red plant dyes. It is betacarotene which gives carrots their orange colour. Betacarotene is fat soluble, ie. is best absorbed along with a fat. This takes place in the upper part of the small intestine. Betacarotene is also a provitamin, as it can be converted to vitamin A when the body is in need
