Xanthophills in Egg and Egg Products

Simple chemical analysis of egg products and eggs thanks to CDR FoodLab with very easy and quick sample preparationXanthophylls are natural pigments added in poultry feed in order to set the colour of the future egg product. The test allows to determine the value of the xanthophylls with an advantageous method and with a minimum waste of food matrix.

CDR FoodLab®  simplifies and speeds up the traditionally used procedures enabling to perform many analyses, in few time and with small quantities of sample as is.
