Project Information @ a Glance
  • Lycopene is a member of the carotenoid family
  • Tomatoes are given their red colour by this pigment called lycopene.
  • Other fruits such as watermelon, guava and pink grapefruit also contain lycopene but in nowhere near the same concentration as tomatoes
  • Antioxidants scavenge or quench unstable molecules called free radicals which are involved in the destruction of healthy body cells and have been linked to every degenerative disease known to man including cancer, arthritis, heart disease, cataracts, skin wrinkling and even the ageing process itself.
  • The antioxidant capabilities of lycopene have been found to be double that of betacarotene, which was regarded as an antioxidant without peer.
  • Lycopene is also the best quencher of a particular type of destructive free radical called singlet-oxygen1
  • Researchers at Universities have produced tomato extract with supercritical CO2 leaving a concentrated mixture of several carotenoids, including lycopene.
  • Removing pure lycopene from the mixture requires the additional step of chromatography.
  • The highest yields came from a pressure of 5,000 pounds per square inch, a temperature of 55įC, and a solvent thatís 90% CO2 and 10% ethanol.
  • A carotenoid biosynthesis process for industrial use (lycopene, beta-carotene, astaxanthin and canthaxanthin) uses photosynthetic bacteria with very good growth and synthesis capacities.
  • There are many technology Offers & Consultancy support Services available
