The effect of process parameters on the efficiency of carotenes extraction from carrot samples by supercritical CO2 is studied. The degree of carotenes extraction increases to approximately 35% at rising temperature (in the range between 60 and 80°C) and pressure (up to 350 atm) at a close to stable fraction of β-carotene (64–70%) in the obtained extracts.
