About Canthaxanthin

Canthaxanthin is also known as cantharidin, apricotin, chanterellin, canthaxanthin, edible orange 8. It is an orange-red carotenoid pigment and an antioxidant.

Canthaxanthin is naturally found in many foods, such as mushrooms, crustaceans, fish and eggs.

Canthaxanthin can also be manufactured by artificial methods, and is mostly used as an animal feed additive to make the color of egg yolk and poultry more vivid.
