Lutein 5% CWS/S-TG combines a cold water soluble form for the fortification of effervescent tablets, food and beverage products with the tablet grade form suitable for a range of tablet applications. Lutein 5% CWS/S-TG delivers excellent performance in regard of stability and handling properties and furthermore contains no ingredient of animal origin. Food and supplement products can be simply and effectively fortified with DSM's free lutein.

Lutein is a carotenoid found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach; it is an important antioxidant and filter of damaging blue light. In humans, lutein from food or supplements is deposited in the center of the eye, in the macula lutea of the retina ('yellow spot'). Lutein protects the sensitive cells in the retina by its antioxidant and blue-light filtering properties. Several studies have shown a positive relationship between consumption of lutein and a lower incidence of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts, the leading causes for acquired blindness in the world.
