C-30 Ester > for intensifying yellow pigmentation of egg yolk and broiler skin

C-30 ester occurs in nature as a metabolic product of apocarotenal, which can be extracted from grass, lucerne, green vegetables and citrus fruits.
Pigmentation of egg-yolks and broiler skin is due to the yellow pigments consumed in the feed. C-30 ester is applied exclusively in the poultry sector in order to impart a golden-yellow colour to egg yolks and skin.
