Novus International COLORTEK Yellow feed additive is a natural alternative to apo-ester for use in egg and broiler chicken skin coloring. This alternative is increasing as the poultry industry adapts to face a shortage of synthetic pigments and decides to replace synthetic ingredients in poultry diets to suit consumer preferences. 

COLORTEK Yellow is a natural source of yellow carotenoids produced with a patented technology that utilizes xanthophylls, extracted from marigold flowers, to deliver desired pigmentation. This technology provides product stability and performance consistent to synthetic applications, improving beyond any previous natural carotenoids on the market with highest concentration of pigment (100mg xanthophylls/kg).
