About Us

In the year 2000, CaroteNature was started with the aim to distribute authentic samples of a large number of carotenoids for analytical purposes to researchers in the carotenoid field worldwide. Since its foundation, CaroteNature has grown steadily. We have exported our products to more than 60 countries all over the world and delivered to 175 universities. Our current stock of ready-for-shipment products includes almost 100 different carotenoids – the majority are available commercially only from our company. These figures clearly demonstrate that CaroteNature is the worldwide leader in the distribution of carotenoids of high purity for analytical purposes.

We also offer services such as analysis of carotenoids in plant and other extracts, custom synthesis or isolation, filling ampoules under inert gas and consultancy in the field of carotenoids. We are cooperating with a number of laboratories of high reputation in the various fields of carotenoid research to ensure the high quality of our products and services.

CaroteNature has been appointed sole distributor of the reprinted Volumes 1A, 1B, 2 and 3 of the book series „Carotenoids“. In addition, also the „Handbook“ and Volume 4 and 5 are available at CaroteNature.
