Natural Ranch MarketABOUT US
For over 30 years Kristina's Natural Ranch Market has been serving the Central San Joaquin Valley with our store located in Fresno, CA. We have long been a "go to" source for organic groceries, natural health products, vitamins, supplements, and natural beauty products.
We have always been strong advocates of the "shop local" mentality and it shows in our efforts to provide food from local family farms to our customers. We also serve as host to the first and ONLY completely Certified Organic Farmer's Market in the area which highlights many of our local farms, and food providers.
We work closely with community organizations to provide discounts to several of them, including Fresno State University students, in order to build a stronger network of individuals that also believe in a strong local economy. Several local health care providers recommend us, as do other community organizations. We donate food to local shelters on a regular basis and also give away organic, free-range turkeys during Thanksgiving in order to further assist where there is a community need.

- What are "carotenes"?
- The name "carotene" was first coined in the early 19th Century by the scientist Wachenroder after he crystallized this compound from carrot roots. Beta-carotene is a member of the carotenoids, which are highly pigmented (red, orange, yellow), fat-soluble compounds naturally present in many fruits, grains, oils, and vegetables (green plants, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, spinach, apricots, and green peppers). Alpha, beta, and gamma carotene are considered provitamins because they can be converted to active vitamin A.
The carotenes possess antioxidant properties. Vitamin A serves several biological functions including involvement in the synthesis of certain glycoproteins. Vitamin A deficiency leads to abnormal bone development, disorders of the reproductive system, xerophthalmia (a drying condition of the cornea of the eye), and ultimately death.
Commercially available beta-carotene is produced synthetically or from palm oil, algae, or fungi. Beta-carotene is converted to retinol, which is essential for vision and is subsequently converted to retinoic acid, which is used for processes involving growth and cell differentiation.
