DSM Nutritional Products YolkFan offers a simple, accurate and consistent means of measuring egg yolk color. DSM has studied consumer preferences in many parts of the world and found that, while preferences vary, consumers in most countries prefer an egg yolk color with a DSM YolkFan value of 12 or more. The blades of the DSM YolkFan should be held immediately above the egg yolk and viewed vertically from above, with the blade numbers facing down and the yolk positioned between the tips of the blade. The reader should always face the side of the blade without numbers and show the number to the assistant for recording. The fan should be closed from one egg to the next to ensure the independence of every measurement.
