marigold

MARIGOLD FLOWERS

Marigold (Tagetes Erecta) is a genus in the sunflower family.  Its petals are rich in Lutein (yellow) and Zeaxanthin (orange) which are widely used in the feed industry as natural pigments. The flowers are dried industrially and its oil is solvent extracted to become a raw material called oleoresin.

PAPRIKA FRUITS

Paprika (Capsicum annuum) is a fruit of the Chili Pepper family. Once dried (usually done in the open air) the oil obtained by solvent extraction has a high content of Capsanthin (red), Lutein (yellow) and Zeaxanthin (orange).

FEEDMILLS AND PREMIXERS ADD THEM IN THEIR PRODUCTION SO FARMERS CAN ENHANCE THE EGGS AND CHICKEN

table eggs

The main usages of our pigments are to color the egg yolk and the broiler skin. The different diet during the year due to the price fluctuation of the cereals would mean color variation in this product.  To avoid this, and to achieve a constant and attractive color of both yolk and chicken the use of added pigments is recommended.

The desired color depends on the tradition of each market for instance, egg yolk is almost red in Japan and nearly white in Denmark. Also many countries prefer white chicken while others, like Mexico or Spain, prefer a golden tone.

Color fans or optical recognition machines are used to test yolks and skin and verify the final color is in the desired range.
