Fat-soluable organic pigments found in the chloroplasts and chromoplasts of plants and some bacteria and fungi. They are tetraterpenoids and range in colour from yellow to red and are responsible for the colour of carrots and ripe tomatoes.

Also called keto-carotenoids, carotenoids are classified as either xanthophylls or carotenes.
