Cane (Food Additive International Number: INS161g) is generally not used for food coloring, only for the addition of feed, can be natural extraction, but also synthetic, because the smaller molecules can be synthesized and natural products exactly the same.

A small amount of canthaxanthin can also be used for jam, candy, syrup, sauces, carbon dioxide drinks and other food, as orange colorants.

Sunburn pill

Canthaxanthin also has a relationship with the popular sun drying tills. Due to the antioxidant properties of canthaxanthin, some people think that taking it can increase the ability of the skin to resist ultraviolet light. Because after intake can accumulate in the skin fat layer, and let the skin produce a similar tan change. Some tanning agents use this natural pigment, but have not been approved by the FDA.

Safety / Cyanin Edit

According to some research, intake of large amounts of canthaxanthin, can lead to accumulation of pigment in the retina.


In 1995, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations / World Health Organization Joint Food Additives Expert Committee (hereinafter referred to as the Committee) assessed the safety of canthaxanthin and designated the maximum allowable daily intake of ADI (ADI, Acceptable Daily Intake) 0.03 mg per kilogram of body weight. ADI refers to the daily dose of the substance (depending on the weight) that the individual can ingest in his daily life without causing a significant risk to health. The committee believes that the use of canthaxanthin as feed colorants is the main way for humans to indirectly ingest this pigment. In its 2000 assessment, the Commission concluded that the long-term intake of food using carrageenan as feed additives would not exceed the daily allowable intake of canthaxanthin.

EFSA (EU Food Safety Authority) in 2010 to assess the dose of canthaxanthin, the conclusion is through the food (directly added food pigments and from salmon, etc.) can not exceed the amount of the current set of ADI, So the use of canthaxanthin approved is safe [1].
