  • Patent number: 5270063
    Abstract: This invention provides for a cereal composition, particularly in a ready-to-eat cereal, that contains beta-carotene (BC) in an amount ranging from about 0.001% to about 0.02% based on the dry weight of the cereal composition. The beta-carotene may be incorporated in the form of water insoluble beadlets or may be added in a soluble form with a sweetening agent during manufacture of the composition. The cereal composition containing BC retains good stability, and normal color, flavor and aroma characteristics as compared with analogous cereal compositions without beta-carotene.
