Carotenoids

Give your products a healthy boost with colorful carotenoids.

Colorful health benefits  

In addition to vibrant colors, DSM Carotenoids will give your products healthy benefits. Certain carotenoids work as antioxidants in the body to protect cells, tissues and organs against the damaging effects of free radicals, which may contribute to the development of disorders such as cancer, heart disease and eye diseases.

Actilease®

Actilease® is an efficient microencapsulation technology addressing three key benefits: it guarantees top of the art stability – allowing customers to minimize overages and costs, it is proven to improve nutrient release and it provides any powder an excellent flowability that is crucial for handling at tablet manufacturers. 

Apocarotenal

Apocarotenal, or trans-β-apo-8'-carotenal, has an orange-red color that is used in foods, beverages and pharmaceutical products. Compared to certain natural pigments, apocarotenal offers ease-of-use and superior color stability.
