Research and trials conducted in Sweden, Australia and
Japan have demonstrated Haematococcus pluvialis algae as an
effective natural pigment for layer and broiler applications.
NatuRose, which is derived from this microalgae, provides an
ideal carotenoid mix for egg pigmentation. The egg yolk colour
is enhanced when poultry are supplemented with astaxanthin.
Poultry exhibit significantly higher live weight gain and
breast weight than birds fed with conventional poultry
- An Australian trial and a research in
Sweden produced yolks with a poultry color score of
11 at a 6ppm inclusion with NatuRose. (deeper, richer
colour of yolks)
- NatuRose increases fertility, weight gain, and
coloration in broiler poultry.
- In Japan and Australia Haematococcus is used
commercially as a natural egg yolk pigment.
- Decreases mortality of chicken and improves overall
