Neurospora sitophila, a species of fermetation fungi was reported containing the β-carotene pigments, the secondary metabolite of the yellow, orange or red-orange pigments groups, On this research, the carotenoid pigments of Neurospora sitophila has been bindered by a Oligosacharide of gelatin-maltodextrins. The bindered products were dried by a spray drier and the β-carotene powder was determined its stability to the storage influence at Relative Humidity 20-30%. Bindered product of β-carotene extract obtained the GME powder with BY value±50 %. Bindered of this extract β- carotene was increased the water solubility and stable at Relative Humidity 20-30% condition, the stability the powder (GME) was decreased start at the third week. HPLC analysis of GME powder showed the decreasing of β-carotene about 30%, after storage for 5 weeks.
