Abstrakt:

Plants are rich and still unexploited sources of bioactive compounds, attractive for their therapeutic properties and as the raw material for the formulation of pharmaceutical and food products. The colour of the plants, especially comestibles as vegetables or fruits, results from chemical compounds whose metabolic activity is the aim of many studies nowadays. The carotenoids, a group of organic compounds with an unsaturated skeleton of hydrocarbons, results in the colours of yellow, orange and red. Having antioxidant activity and, for some of them, being the precursors to vitamin A in the animal organisms are willingly used in very different medical applications. The article describes the current state of knowledge regarding the types and quantities of carotenoids in vegetables, the advancement of knowledge of their metabolic impact, their possible applications in medicine, as well as the desired directions for further research. Also, the scope of their industrial use and the prospects of carotenoids’ market development are included. This work is carried out in the framework of the COST Action – EUROCAROTEN CA15136, with the aim of the exchange and development of knowledge between European researchers working on carotenoids
