CANTHACOL®


Canthaxanthin is a carotenoid widely found in nature. It is an essential coloring agent that naturally occurs in bacteria, fungi, algae and insects, as well as certain fish and birds. It is through these channels that it eventually enters the food chain.

The pigmentation of egg yolk and chicken skin is a natural process in which canthaxanthin is one of the most essential coloring agents. However, there are insufficient levels of canthaxanthin present in animal feedstuffs. This results in a product color that does not meet consumer expectations. Supplementation is required to achieve desired product benefits.

Based on natur identical canthaxanthin, CANTHACOL® is a red carotenoid feed premixture that delivers consistent and uniform color for the egg yolk and broiler skin when used in combination with yellow carotenoids.

Product features:

  • Homogeneous particle size providing top bioavailability
  • Free-flowing characteristics
  • Easy handling and application
  • Produced in line with the Novus Quality Management System
  • Safe long-term storage
