The Carotenoid Development Story

Our carotenoids are utilized in the nutraceutical industry to help reduce the risk of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), and used to improve visual performance and act as anti-oxidant supplements. Carotenoids are utilized in the food industry for multiple applications such as health drinks, cheese, pasta, yogurt, butter, meats and sausage coloration. For the aquaculture industry, we have developed highly efficient and low cost carotenoids to supplement feeds, as they are a necessary nutrient for biologic and metabolic functions due to their anti-oxidant properties. Finally in the feed industry, they are intended to provide the golden skin color of healthy broilers and the bright golden color of egg yolks.

Carotenoids have been conceived for several different industries.
