CAROPHYLL® Red 10%
CAROPHYLL® – because color matters
Much of the pleasure we derive from food comes from its visual appearance, so the color of food ingredients is extremely important. We offer products that allow consistent delivery of precisely-pigmented egg yolks, poultry and fish.
Carotenoids play an important role in animal feed. They are vital antioxidants and also vitamin A precursors.
Their most important role in poultry farming and aquaculture however, is their ability to improve the appearance of products such as egg yolks, chicken skin and fish flesh.
Carotenoid levels vary from one plant to another, and unless poultry and fish diets are provided with supplements, the result will be variation in the appearance of food products.
Our CAROPHYLL® range of carotenoid additives allows producers to deliver precisely-colored and pigmented food reliably and consistently. We have combined our quality products, our unique beadlet technology and our many years’ experience to provide a great method for improving product quality and increasing consumer confidence.

CAROPHYLL® yellow 10% and CAROPHYLL® red 10% are free-flowing, granulated carotenoid products. They consist of small beadlets in which the carotenoid is finely distributed in a starch-encapsulated plantand carbohydrate matrix to which antioxidants have been added making CAROPHYLL® animal-free products.
The special manufacturing process, known as 'spraydried coating', protects the carotenoids against oxidation and gives them high stability, optimal distribution, outstanding mixing properties and very good absorption characteristics.
CAROPHYLL® Red 10% is used as feed additive for pigmentation of yolk and skin in poultry.
