I'm a high school student beginning a science fair project for my chemistry 
class.  I was interested in testing for beta carotene in carrots that were 
prepared in different ways (canned, raw, boiled, etc.).  I am having trouble 
finding information about what equipment and procedures are needed to measure 
beta carotene.  Do you know any high school-level methods to do this?

Thank you for your time to respond to my question!
