About IOSA

Who are we?

Established in 1966, IOSA is a Mexican corporation that has been involved in the research, development, production and commercialization of carotenoids from natural sources for the past 50 years.

The Carotenoid Development Story

Carotenoids have been conceived for several different industries.

Our carotenoids are utilized in the nutraceutical industry to help reduce the risk of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), and used to improve visual performance and act as anti-oxidant supplements. Carotenoids are utilized in the food industry for multiple applications such as health drinks, cheese, pasta, yoghurt, butter, meats and sausage coloration. For the aquaculture industry, we have developed highly efficient and low cost carotenoids to supplement feeds, as they are a necessary nutrient for biologic and metabolic functions due to their anti-oxidant properties. Finally in the feed industry, they are intended to provide the golden skin colour of healthy broilers and the bright golden colour of egg yolks.
