Carotenes Sources

Good sources of beta carotene include carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and other orange winter squashes, cantaloupe, pink grapefruit, spinach, apricots, broccoli, and most dark green leafy vegetables. The more intense the green, yellow or orange color the more beta carotene the vegetable or fruit contains. These foods are also good sources of alpha carotene. Beta carotene is not destroyed by cooking which, in fact, may make it easier to absorb.
