Canthaxanthin Usage And Synthesis
UsesOral suntanning agent
UsesAntioxidant immune to promote
UsesPermissible color additive for food and drugs (exempt from certification): Fed. Regist. 34, no. 5 (Jan. 8, 1969). Oral suntanning agent.
UsesCanthaxanthin is a synthetic red colorant that is the carotenoid of most intense red color. it is available in oil-soluble, oil-dispersible, and water-dispersible forms. it has fair ph, heat, light, and chemical stability with a low tinctorial strength. unlike the carotenoids beta- carotene and beta-apo-8-carotenal, it does not possess vitamin a activity. maximum usage level is 66 ppm. uses include carbonated soft drinks, salad dressing, and spaghetti sauce.
DefinitionChEBI: A carotenone that consists of beta,beta-carotene bearing two oxo substituents at positions 4 and 4'.
Brand nameApotrin;Phenoro.
World Health Organization (WHO)Canthaxanthin, a naturally-occurring carotenoid with a deep redorange colour, is widely used as a food colouring agent. Since the mid-1970s it has been included in oral 'artificial suntan' preparations. It is also available in preparations used in the treatment of certain photodermatoses. By the mid-1980s its use in such preparations had been associated with the accumulation of crystalline deposits in the retina. Reported functional changes relating to dark adaptation have been of marginal clinical significance and largely reversible. Nevertheless, this has led to the withdrawal of artificial suntan preparations containing canthaxanthin by several regulatory authorities. Preparations for treatment of photodermatoses remain available in some but not all of these countries.
HazardOral intake may cause loss of night vision.
Safety ProfileWhen heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
Purification MethodsPurify canthaxanthin by chromatography on a column of deactivated alumina or magnesium oxide, or on a thin layer plate of silica gel G (M
Properties and Applicationsyellow light pink to red yellow light.
