Table 9 Results of the characterization of the marigold oleoresin by open column separation

From: Hydrolysis of carotenoid esters from Tagetes erecta by the action of lipases from Yarrowia lipolytica

Separated fraction Xanthophyllsa,b g/kg % of total carotenoids
Esters 125.23 (0.22) 88.4 (0.11)
MHP 12.53 (0.15) 7.92 (0.07)
DHP + RPc 3.9 (0.37) 2.68 (0.02)
Total xanthophylls 141.66 100.00
  1. aData are expressed as mean (SD) with n = 3
  2. bXanthophylls were quantified as equivalent to trans-lutein
  3. cDHP + RP = free lutein + residual pigments
