In contrast to the artificial colorants, Apocarotenal has other benefits in addition to the coloration.  Apocarotenal just like the other carotenoids is a precursor for Vitamin A but has only 50% activity as compared to beta-carotene. That means that the molecule of Apocarotenal is cleaved by the human body into Vitamin A that is utilized by the human body at the rate needed. This Apocarotenal safe without making it Vitamin A toxic due to this reason. Also, the percentage of being converted into Vitamin A is a very small percentage for Apocarotenal, even less than one-tenth of the product added. Also according to the definition of Vitamin A by WHO/FAO, this enables the manufacturers to claim Vitamin A on the labeling of Apocarotenal packaging.
