Your Quality Egg Nutrition Solution

For more than 20 years, Kemin has been a market leader in providing high quality and safe carotenoid products to the layer industry. Carotenoids, also known as pigments, are used in commercial egg production to increase optimum egg yolk color and lutein nutrition. The addition of lutein increases the nutritional value of the egg. With the introduction of Organic ORO GLO® to the market, organic egg producers can now offer consumers the same benefits and value found in non-organic eggs. 

 

Lutein and Xanthophyll Benefits1

  • Promotes overall eye health and function
  • Acts as internal sunglasses to filter out blue light, the most damaging spectrum of visible light
  • Helps protect cells from oxidative damage and inflammation
  • Boosts immune system functions
  • Supports skin health

Through its Customer Laboratory Services (CLS), Kemin offers customers a complimentary validation to test color and lutein values in egg yolks. CLS analyzes organic and non-organic feed ingredients to compare the consistency of lutein and color levels to the customer's carotenoid specification.
