However, it is not only the quantity of pigments that matters but also their bioavailability and color intensity. With Lucantin® Yellow (C-30 ester) any egg yolk color in yellow is possible.
- Highly efficient and cost-effective

In poultry, C30 ester is used as a feed additive for pigmentation of egg yolks and broiler skin. It is the most efficacious yellow pigment available to poultry producers. In comparison with xanthophylls from plants, C30 ester provides three times more coloring potential in egg yolks and 1.5 times better coloration when used in skin pigmentation.
With Lucantin® yellow (C-30 ester) any yellow egg yolk color is possible. But not only hue is important, color intensity counts, too. The human eye merges both attributes to one color impression, and the perfect pigmentation will always have to score on both levels.
