ABC Wednesday - X is for Xanthophyll


X is for Xanthophyll............

eggs in a bowl

It's in there - the xanthophyll.
All eggs, even these hard boiled ones have it in them.
Are you ready for what it actually is?
The xanthophyll is the yellow carotenoid pigment that is in the egg yolk.
I know it's a stretch for X this week, but it works, even if you can't see it in this image.

This is the eighth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
