Abstract:

Fortification of food with micronutrients is considered a valid technology and strategy to provide adequate levels of the respective nutrients in the diet, and where the fortified food is highly accessible to the target population. Carrot is a commonly use as vegetable for table purpose and industrial utilization of carrot for the preparation of products is very limited. Dehydrated carrot, carrot powder are some of the commercial carrot products , but not lucarative. Carrot has the most wanted nutrient b carotene which is a potential ingredient to alleviate vitamin A deficiency in children. Hence the present study focuses on extraction ,encapsulation of carotene from carrot and fortification in edible oils to address the micro nutrient malnutrition.
