      Carolight® is a transgenic maize variety that accumulates extraordinary levels of carotenoids, including those with vitamin A activity. The development of Carolight® maize involved the technical implementation of a novel ...
    • Provitamin A carotenoids from an engineered high-carotenoid maize are bioavailable and zeaxanthin does not compromise β-carotene absorption in poultry 

      Díaz Gómez, Joana; Moreno Martínez, José Antonio; Angulo Asensio, Eduardo; Sandmann, Gerhard; Zhu, Changfu; Capell Capell, Teresa; Nogareda, Carmina (Springer International Publishing, 2017)
      High-carotenoid (HC) maize, a biofortified staple crop which accumulates β-carotene, β-cryptoxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin, was used as a feed component in a chicken feeding trial to assess the bioavailability of provitamin ...
    • The distribution of carotenoids in hens fed on biofortified maize is influenced by feed composition, absorption, resource allocation and storage 

      Moreno Martínez, José Antonio; Díaz-Gómez, J.; Nogareda, Carmina; Angulo Asensio, Eduardo; Sandmann, Gerhard; Portero Otín, Manuel; Serrano Casasola, José Carlos Enrique; Twyman, Richard M.; Capell Capell, Teresa; Zhu, Changfu; Christou, Paul (Nature, 2016)
      Carotenoids are important dietary nutrients with health-promoting effects. The biofortification of staple foods with carotenoids provides an efficient delivery strategy but little is known about the fate and distribution ...
