Kemin Industries has launched Organic ORO GLO, a USDA certified organic additive, to help organic egg producers intensify the color of egg yolks and add lutein content.
Lutein, a carotenoid, protects eye health and can minimize the impacts of age-related macular degeneration.
ORO GLO has been typically used in the layer industry to improve lutein value and add color to the egg yolk.
Egg producers target higher levels of lutein which bolsters product value while also providing a consumer a health benefit.
Kemin worked with suppliers to source certified organic marigold petals which makes the additive compliant with requirements of the USDA National Organic Program.
Organic ORO GLO, available in dry form, delivers consistent pigment color density.
