The complexity and many facets of dietary diversification were reflected in the poster session on this topic. It was the session that had the greatest number of posters – 30 abstracts were accepted and 23 posters presented – demonstrating the continued effort directed towards this longterm and definitive approach to combating vitamin A deficiency. Several posters reported the levels of β-carotene and other carotenoids in foods, with emphasis on local or traditional foods, such as green leafy vegetables from Sri Lanka (Chandrika et al.), carotenoid-rich bananas and other foods from Micronesia (Englberger et al.), squashes and pumpkins from Brazil (Garcia et al.) and totai (Acrocomia totai) fruit from Bolivia’s Amazon region (VasquezTato et al.). Also presented were the carotenoid contents of processed foods, such as the powder and oil of the Vietnamese gac (Momordica cochinchinensis) fruit (Duc et al.) and commercial processed carrots from Brazil (Tawata and Kimura). The βcarotene concentrations of ripe and half-ripe mangoes, as well as of dried and stored mango, were also determined in Burkina Faso (Zagré et al.). β-carotene content, retention and in vitro accessibility varied widely in Sri Lankan green leafy vegetables (Chandrika et al.). However, β-carotene retention was similar in three traditional cooking preparations (with scraped coconut, with water or coconut milk, fried). All three cooking methods improved in vitro β-carotene accessibility
