Algatechnologies Ltd., a manufacturer and supplier of natural algae astaxanthin, announced the launch of AstaPure 20 percent astaxanthin oleoresin. The content of astaxanthin exceeds any on the market.
“The new, advanced product allows our customers to offer much smaller, friendlier sized capsules without changing or reducing the astaxanthin dosage," said Efrat Kat, director of marketing and sales at Algatech.
The product is sourced from an astaxanthin biomass developed at the Algatech facilities. The oleoresin is produced by using an advanced carbon dioxide extraction technology that enables delicate extraction without the use of organic solvents, keeping astaxanthin's natural bioactive properties intact.
"This launch of high astaxanthin content oleoresin is in line with our strategy to bring added value to our customers by developing advanced product forms as well as new active ingredients utilizing Algatech's unique technologies" said Hagai Stadler, CEO of Algatech.
Algatech’s cultivation process employs a closed system that remains completely exposed to natural sunlight. This allows an environmentally controlled process for the production of high-purity astaxanthin ingredients. The AstaPure line also includes a 10 percent astaxanthin oleoresin; 2.5 percent and 2 percent astaxanthin vegetarian beadlets; 3 percent astaxanthin powder and 4mg astaxanthin capsules, supplied in bulk. All AstaPure Products can be used across multiple forms of dietary supplements, cosmeceuticals, foods and beverages.
