Question: The lutein supplement I bought has a strong odor. Is that normal?
Answer: It is normal for some forms of lutein to have a characteristic odor described by some as similar to vase water in which flowers have remained too long. Although not a quality issue, there are certain forms and formulations of lutein with less odor. For more information, as well as our quality ratings of 22 lutein-containing supplements, see the discussion of the "Forms of lutein" in the Review of Vision Supplements with Lutein and Zeaxanthin >>
