  • Usesβ-apo-8 -carotenal is used to color juices, fruit drinks, soups, jams, jellies, and gelatin.
  • Usesβ-Apo-8'-carotenal is an antioxidant β-carotene (C184250) derivative found in Cucumis melo melons and traditional Portuguese fruits and vegetables. Studies have shown that β-Apo-8'-carotenal decreased the in vivo AFB1-induced DNA SSB and the binding of AFB1 to liver DNA and increased in vitro AFB1 metabolism to aflatoxin M1, a less genotoxic metabolite.
  • UsesBeta-Apo-8'-Carotenal is a colorant that is a carotenoid producing a light to dark orange hue. It has fair light stability, poor oxidation stability, and good ph stability. It is insoluble in water but is available in water-dispersible, oil-dispersible, and oil-soluble forms. It has vitamin a activity. It is used in cheese and cheese sauces, and dressings. The maximum usage level is 33 ppm. Related colorants are beta-carotene and canthaxanthin.
  • DefinitionChEBI: An apo carotenoid triterpenoid compound arising from oxidative degradation of the beta,beta-carotene skeleton at the 8'-position.
  • Safety ProfileWhen heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
  • Purification MethodsRecrystallise β-apo-8'-carotenal from CHCl3/EtOH mixture or n-hexane. [Bobrowski & Das J Org Chem 91 1210 1987, Beilstein 7 III 2622, 7 IV 1782.]
