Algatechnologies Extends Shelf Life of AstaPure® Natural Algae Astaxanthin

Algatechnologies, (Algatech) Israel, announces the successful completion of stability studies for its AstaPure® line of natural astaxanthin products. The research included the successful increase of a recommended retest date for its leading ingredient, 10% astaxanthin oleoresin, to four years at room temperature.

This breakthrough shelf-life extension was approved after completion of more than four years of real-time stability studies, indicating significantly better shelf life conditions than those of other brands.

 In order to test how various environmental conditions affect the stability of astaxanthin in finished products, Algatech performed a comprehensive series of experiments on the concentration of natural astaxanthin in AstaPure® products to study the influence of air, heat and light, as well as various combinations of these parameters and over extended periods of time.

 “In light of the impressive results of the studies, we are able to extend AstaPure’s shelf-life at room temperature with complete confidence, providing that the packages remain sealed in their original containers,” explains Oran Ayalon, PhD. , Director for R&D at Algatech. “In order to make sure the temperature is controlled and to further extend the shelf life, it is recommended to store the product in refrigerated conditions.”

 “The successful completion of the stability tests is an important part of Algatech’s continuing efforts to provide customers the best, highest quality, sustainable and, importantly, most stable product,” says Efrat Kat, Director of Marketing & Sales at Algatech.

 Unlike artificial astaxanthin, Natural Algae Astaxanthin is a highly potent antioxidant, exhibiting approximately 500 times greater effectiveness than tocopherol (vitamin E). It is much more powerful than other carotenoids. AstaPure® Natural Algae Astaxanthin has demonstrated numerous benefits, including enhancing cardiovascular health, ameliorating symptoms of central nervous system disorders, improving athletes’ performance, protecting the skin from premature aging and more.

Algatech is a global biotechnology company specializing in the commercial cultivation of microalgae and is a world leader in the production and supply of natural astaxanthin. The AstaPure® line of products are used as active ingredients in the dietary supplements, food, and cosmetics industries.

 Algatech is a member of NAXA—the Natural Algae Astaxanthin Association—a trade organization dedicated to educating the public and industry about the health benefits of Natural Algae Astaxanthin and the major differences between sources.
