Identification of Lutein(An important carotenoid) and Natural Origin of Lutein.:
Formular:C40H50O2;M.W. 568.9;CAS No.127-40-2.
Natural Origin of Lutein:
Marigold flowers (Tagetes erecta) are grown, harvested, dried, and then pellets are manufactured from the dried flower petals (ref. to the flowchart). These are then extracted according to high standard specifications. The primary sources of marigold flowers are mainly from Asia, but can also be from other areas. The marigold extract is heated to increase flowability and then purified by a patented process. This process removes the fatty acids commonly found in marigold extract and produces crystalline lutein and zeaxanthin.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are generated using a proprietary technology, which includes a saponification and crystallization step, and does not include chemical synthesis, but rather extracts the lutein from the natural source material. The crystals are then washed to remove contaminants and collected by centrifugation, followed by drying.
A marigold flower contains abundant amounts of a valuable antioxidant compound called lutein (LOO-teen). The lutein, contained within the flower petals, is extracted and purified through a patented process and formulated into a natural, crystalline lutein extract ingredient under the name MDidea Marigold Extract. It then is added to an array of foods and dietary supplements from multivitamins to fruit and vegetable juices.
Lutein as Commercially prepared Marigold flower extract(Tagetes erecta) was saponified and analyzed for carotenoid composition. HPLC analyses were performed on two normal-phase columns (beta-Cyclobond and silica) amd pm a C(30) reversed-phase column.
The extract contained 93% utilizable pigments (detected at 450 nm), consisting of all-trans and cid isomers of zeaxanthin (5%), all-trans and cis isomers of lutein, and lutein esters (88%).
All were identified by chromatographic retention, UV-visible spectra, and positive ion electro spray mass spectrometry in comparison to authentic standards.
So we know that,Lutein is a carotenoid pigment found mainly Marigold(Big Marigold,mainly in Marigold flower petals,Latin Name:Tagetes Erecta)is chemically bonded to various types of fatty acids.also could be found in spinach, kale, amaranth, red paprika, leeks, peas, romain lettuce,collard and mustard greens and certain flowers.
