Does Turmeric Contain Carotene?

Turmeric has equivalent antioxidant properties as carotene

Carotenes are plant molecules that are precursors to vitamin A. Some publications about the compounds in turmeric's rhizome report that it contains high amounts of carotenes. However, it appears that this may be inaccurate. (ii.2675170)

The research study referenced by these publications did not claim that turmeric contains carotene. It actually stated that turmeric contains the equivalent antioxidant power of carotene. In fact, lab experiments specifically run on turmeric to test carotenoid levels found no detectable levels of lycopene, α-carotene, or β-carotene. (ii.2675170)
