Water-soluble lutein

Blue California Inc. has developed an innovative form of lutein with excellent solubility in cold water. Biolut Lutein WS 5%, with a two year shelf life, is available to the dietary supplement industry, as well as the food, cosmetics and beverage industries.

Lutein is an important pigment found in a small area of the retina responsible for central vision. Scientific studies have shown that an increase in macula pigmentation decreases the risk for eye diseases such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), which causes vision loss for millions around the world.

Blue California’s proprietary and patent-pending micro-encapsulation technology makes oil-soluble lutein into a free-flowing powder, with great stability and solubility in cold water. This proprietary technology is also suitable for taste and odor masking, time-release formulas, and for maximizing bioavailability.
