The Analysis of Carotenoids from Mint Extracts

Mihaela Ciurea, I. Jianu
This paperwork proposed to establish the efficiency of the carotenoids extracts with aqueous ethanol in processing and analytical scope. Aqueous ethanolic phase was processed and used in HPLC analysis. Extracts, which have in their composition carotenoids pigments, are being put under saponification for releasing carotenoids and discharging chlorophylls and fats that can be saponificated. In the etheric phase carotenoids pigments have been extracted, and then the value of total carotenoids has been read for spectrophotometric evaluation.
