Good news: Springbio, Hangzhou Branch, is expanding its new formula Feed pigment -Canthaxanthin min.10% CWS.

Springbio, Hangzhou Branch, is expanding a new formula of canthaxathin 10% feed CWS. It can easy dissolve in cool water and present a bright red.

Spring red 10% are free-flowing, granulated carotenoid products. They consist of small beadlets in which the carotenoid is finely distributed in a starch-encapsulated plant and carbohydrate matrix to which antioxidants have been added, making Spring products animal-free.
The special manufacturing process, known as ‘spray-dried coating’, protects the carotenoids against oxidation and gives them high stability, water dispersability, outstanding mixing properties, and very good absorption characteristics.

Yolk evaluation: color
In addition to water, lipids and proteins, the yolk contains carotenoids which are responsible for the color of the yolk.
As the hens cannot synthesize them, all carotenoids present in the yolk come from the rations fed to laying hens. Rations containing yellow corn, corn gluten meal, lucerne, xanthophyll-rich ingredients like flower (marigold), plant (paprika) extracts or specialty ingredients like Spring Red &yellow® will supply more carotenoids than wheat-based rations. Therefore, the color, intensity, shade and homogeneity of the yolk is dependent on the rations fed to hens and their ability to properly absorb and deposit carotenoids in the yolk.
In many countries, consumers prefer a nice, golden yolk and egg producers must ensure that they consistently meet these expectations by monitoring the intensity of the yolk color and adjusting the formulation of the rations fed to laying hens accordingly.
