Dietary fat stimulates bile flow, which facilitates the emulsification of fat and fat-soluble vitamins into micelles in the small intestine. Studies have shown that crystalline BC in oil, commercial beadlet form, or dietary supplements are much more bioavailable than carotenoids from foods (11, 12, 14). These highly absorbed forms of BC can result in a 2:1 weight-forweight conversion efficiency whereas the Recommended Dietary Allowances use conversion factors of 6:1 and 12:1 for BC and other provitamin A carotenoids, respectively, to VA (15).

Erdman, Jr. INTRODUCTION In recent years, carotenoids have both been hailed as miracle nutrients and viewed with skepticism regarding their actual impact on health. Although observational epidemiologic studies show a consistent inverse association between fruit and vegetable intake and the risk of several cancers, cardiovascular disease, and age-related macular degeneration, -carotene (BC) intervention trials in smokers did not result in reduced risk of lung cancer or cardiovascular disease.
