This book contains a table of composition of carotenoids in fruits and vegetables produced in Latin America. The compiled data were obtained by HPLC. It includes compounds of interest in food and human health, agriculture and biodiversity. Besides common products in the diet of the countries of the region, other wild or little used ones are included, in an attempt to contribute to the promotion and value local species and varieties.
