Since being approved for use in Chile a few months ago, Panaferd has been used by Chilean producers to improve the quality of diets for laying hens and eliminate the use of chemical colorants, the main additive used for yolk pigmentation.

In egg production, the final product depends quite a lot on feed, as well as the health of your poultry. When a bird is robust and healthy, it has more opportunity to pass nutrients on to its eggs, enhancing nutrition, flavor, and color. In that way, nutrition and color go hand-in-hand for layer hens! Supplementation is key to controlling egg color, of course, but only proper nutrition can improve the health of your hens and the flavor of your eggs as well. For both color and nutrition, Panaferd® offers a powerful complex of antioxidant carotenoids that can help your layer hens produce more high-quality eggs. Here’s how Panaferd, approved for use in egg farming in Chile, can contribute to the health of your birds, and the color of their eggs.

Naturally-derived Nutrition and Color

The antioxidant carotenoids in Panaferd® come from a natural microorganism, paracoccus carotinifaciens. This organism produces multiple powerful carotenoids, including astaxanthin, adonirubin, adonixanthin, beta-carotene, and many more!

Antioxidants for Health and Robustness

Hens and pullets fed with Panaferd® get a natural antioxidant boost, improving immune health and resilience in your laying hens. Better health can mean better eggs and a better life cycle for your birds.

Differentiation and Added Value for Consumers

Eggs produced by hens fed Panaferd, unlike eggs produced on a conventional diet, have naturally-sourced color in their yolks, with various carotenoids and super antioxidants such as natural astaxanthin, providing multiple benefits for health and longevity.

Offering Chilean Egg Producers Quality, Health, and Sustainability

Overall, Panaferd® has benefits for your hens, your eggs, and your business – all from a natural source. If you want your product to rise above the rest, Panaferd® will give your eggs the mark of quality, and benefits to your layer hens to help back it up.
