Studies have reported evidence that consumption of carotenoids provides many health benefits. Therefore, assuring the maintenance of their nutritional/nutraceutical properties after food processing is gaining increasing interest. Products such as breakfast cereals and ready-to-eat snacks are commonly consumed foods that potentially could serve as ideal vehicles of bioactive compounds, such as carotenoids. Some of these foods are produced by extrusion. The impact of the extrusion process on bioactive compounds is harsh and may require control of the processing conditions to alleviate the negative effects of the process on the product's nutritional quality. Extrusion process parameters, such as temperature, screw speed, shear rate, and the feed moisture content, can affect the retention of carotenoids in the final product. The influence of those parameters on products is discussed in this review, taking into account aspects of carotenoid stability and the conservation of its nutritional properties. Further, some strategies to increase carotenoid retention during extrusion processes are discussed. (AU)
