Dark red pigmentation can be achieved with Citranaxanthin, the active ingredient in Lucantin® CX 10% NXT. The required dosage depends on the xanthophyll content of the ration.

Citranaxantin is a red pigment used exclusively in poultry feeds to impart red color to egg yolks. In combination with yellow carotenoids, citranaxanthin intensifies the pigmentation and imparts the desired goldenyellow color. Citranaxanthin has been applied in this field for many decades. In comparison with canthaxanthin, a constant action ratio of 1.5:1 is achieved over the entire range.
