Abstract

IT is well known that different animals deal with carotenoids derived from vegetable sources in various ways. The adipose tissue of the horse and the cow contain considerable amounts of polyene-hydrocarbons (carotenes), but it does not accumulate polyene-alcohols (xanthophylls). A precisely opposite selection would appear to take place in the fat of the hen.
