So, what is carotenes!?

Carotenes are a group of natural pigments found in many colorful fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, tomatoes, and sweet potatoes. These organic compounds are responsible for the bright red, orange, and yellow hues of these foods. Not only do they add visual appeal to our meals, but they also provide a host of health benefits. Carotenes are potent antioxidants that protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals. Additionally, they are a precursor to vitamin A, which is essential for healthy vision, immune function, and skin health. Incorporating carotene-rich foods into your diet can boost your overall health and wellbeing.
