Canthaxanthin is a substance belonging to the Carotenoid family. It has an orange to orange-red color. It is generally permitted in the US for use in foods. In the EU, the approval is limited to one food application only, Saucisses de Strasbourg. Its E number is E161g.

The presence of canthaxanthin in feed for poultry and farmed fish can lead to a more intensely-coloured egg yolk and flesh from poultry, salmon and trout. It is approved for a number of such applications in the US as well as in the EU.
