Caroténoïdes mélangés issus d’algues > pour denrées alimentaires

Carotenoids are plant pigments with a colour spectrum of yellow to orange and red. Mainly, they appear in the chromoplasts of the plants. BTC offers you a wide range of different mixed carotenoids, which are sourced from the algae “Dunaliella salina”. In the human body, they have two independent effects: source of vitamin A and as an antioxidant. For that reason, they are important e.g. for the immune system, the eyes, bone growth, skin and lung tissues and support the protection against oxidative stress. Our BTC expert team will help you to find the best solution for your end-product.
