What is Canthaxanthin Powder?

Canthaxanthin powder is a dye that is similar to the chemical that makes carrots orange. It occurs naturally and can also be made in a laboratory. People use it as medicine.

Canthaxanthin powder is used to reduce sensitivity to sunlight (photosensitivity) experienced by people who have a rare genetic disease called erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP). In these people, sunlight can cause skin reactions such as rash, itch, and eczema. Bulk canthaxanthin is also used to reduce sun sensitivity caused by certain medications and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

1.Canthaxanthin powder(INS161g) is primarily used as a feed additive for animals. It can lead to a more intensely-coloured egg yolk and flesh from poultry, and a more reddish colour for salmon.

It can also be used as a colour additive in foods. Nevertheless, its use for such purpose is less common than as feeding stuffs for animals.

2.Bulk Canthaxanthin is used as poultry feed additive to yield red color in skin and yolks (Esatbeyoglu and Rimbach, 2017). The European Union permits the use of canthaxanthin in feedstuff at a maximum content of 25 mg/kg of final feedstuff (Oehlenschläger and Ostermeyer, 2016), while the United States allows the use of this pigment in broiler chicken and salmonid fish feeds at a concentration below 30 mg/0.45 kg of solid or semi-solid feed or below 30 mg/0.74 L of liquid food
