Many fruits and vegetables contain lutein, but due to the low content, it cannot be easily separated. The occurrence of marigold flowers makes it to be an easily thing. Marigold flower is an annual herb with orange color. Lutein is firstly been found in marigold flower petals from Switzerland. It exists as an‘esterified’ form and is commonly known as lutein ester.

lutein is present in plants as fatty-acid esters, with one or two fatty acids bound to the two hydroxyl-groups. For this reason, saponification (de-esterfication) of lutein esters to yield free lutein may yield lutein in any ratio from 1:1 to 1:2 molar ratios with the saponifying fatty acid. So there are two kinds of products form extract from marigold flower, lutein and lutein ester.
