XAROCOL®


Carotenoids – pigments found in plants – provide several health benefits including increased antioxidant effect, improved immune and reproductive function and cardiovascular protection when included in animal diets. Additionally, carotenoids positively impact consumer perception by enhancing the color of certain foods.

Capsanthin is a carotene that is found organically in paprika and red pepper. All animals need carotenoids, but since they cannot produce these naturally-occurring nutrients, they must obtain them through their diet. The challenge lies in providing livestock with a consistent and optimal level. Novus carotenoid solutions ensure animals receive the right amount for maximum health and production benefits.

XAROCOL® is a red pigment based on natural carotenoids, mainly capsanthin, extracted from paprika fruits (Capsicum annuum), which delivers consistent and uniform color for egg yolks and broiler skin. When used in combination with yellow carotenoids, XAROCOL delivers the desired level of red coloring as well as efficient absorption, optimal dispersability and stability in final feed.

Product features:

  • Homogeneous particle size
  • Free-flowing characteristics
  • Easy handling and application
  • Produced under FAMI-QS certification and strict plan of undesirable substances
  • 100% natural source of carotenoids
