Title: Carotenoid uptake by human triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins from the green leafy vegetable Eruca sativa
Author: Tassi, EMM

Abstract: Carotenoid absorbability from arugula (Eruca sativa) was estimated from the contents of the triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins (TRL) of 15 women over a 6 It time interval, yielding an average apparent absorption of 0.27 mu mole of P-carotene (5.6 mu mole intake), whereas a similar intake of standard beta-carotene resulted in the absorption of 0.59 mu mole. The corresponding rates for the raw and cooked leaves were 18.2 +/- 7 and 22.9 +/- 13nmole(.)L(-1)h(-1) (P > 0.05), against 37.1 +/- 12nmole-L(-1)h(-1) for beta-carotene capsules. For lutein, the apparent mean uptakes were 5.6 +/- 4 and 6.7 +/- 4nmole(.)L(-1)h(-1), for the raw and cooked, respectively. It was concluded that the relative loading of P-carotene onto TRLs is favored over that of lutein and that absorbability of these arugula carotenoids by normal adults is substantial.
