“The feet are yellow, buy this.” “This pork is red, this is good.” Often heard in the market, such a dialogue. However, the information reported was a surprise: fish, poultry, “very yellow, very red” is very likely to eat a chemical pigment added to feed people more harm than good. A feed industry sources, through the pigment in feed for chickens, ducks, fish, shrimp, crabs and other aquaculture products “make”, has become an open secret within the industry. Artificial colors add more than a “Banana Fish.” Not long ago, Shunde, a pond farmers actually found the fish bones into a golden yellow yellow “banana Hawaii”, desperation, only more support for 3 months. “Even if support for three months, fade the color of the surface only, the actual color of its body already settling down. Some consumers do not buy chicken feet are not yellow, more red meat more like it. Guanghong feed head Mr Wong said, this is erroneous. Very yellow feet most likely to eat feed containing the chemical yellow, red meat is likely to eat red pigment containing chemical or feed containing the hormone. Sell yellow feet on the market, they add a yellow pigment in the feed. Hormones in feed, grow more red meat can make … this has become an open secret in the industry. It is reported that feed pigment into two, one is in the raw materials of natural pigments, such as full surface of the golden grain corn, itself containing natural lutein, no additional add; while the other is artificial colors, is a chemical synthetic materials, low cost. General formal large enterprises of raw materials used are from natural pigments, but some small businesses and non-formal farmers to reduce costs, often choose the latter, some are even mixed farmers with their feed, or add individual the contraband. ‘With’ additive ‘feeding out of the pigs, chickens, ducks, fish and other aquaculture products, a good friend to sell pretty colors, it is difficult to distinguish between ordinary consumers, but if you add too many artificial colors, people more harm than good. “
