To manufacture Lutein powder in a factory, the marigold flowers are first harvested and dried. The dried flowers are then ground into a fine powder using a milling machine. The powder is then extracted using solvents such as hexane or ethyl acetate to extract the lutein. The extract undergoes purification to remove any impurities and the resulting lutein powder is then packaged and stored under controlled conditions until it is ready to be distributed.
