HPLC analysis of haematococcus algae color revealed 4 principal pigments which exhibited UV-V is spectra similar to that of astaxanthin. HPLC analysis of saponified haematococcus algae color and LC/APCI-MS analysis of the haematococcus algae color suggested that the pigments were a group of astaxanthin monoesters. The 4 principal pigments were identified as the astaxanthin monoesters with linolenic, linoleic, oleic, and palmitic acids, by LC/APIC-MS analyses of synthetic esters of astaxanthin
