Algatechnologies Introduces Astaxanthin Water Soluble Emulsion

February 28
12:26 2012

Algatechnologies, Israel, the leading manufacturer of natural astaxanthin, has developed a 2% natural astaxanthin in a unique liquid-emulsion format under the AstaPure™ brand name.

Natural astaxanthin is a lipid-soluble ingredient and can usually used in oil-based formulations. However, due to its extremely powerful antioxidant properties, there is a high demand in the market for a water soluble form that can be introduced in “oil-in-water” cosmetics formulations and as an active functional ingredient for beverages.

“Since natural astaxanthin was recognized as GRAS by the FDA, we are seeing a growing demand from food and beverages manufacturers seeking water-soluble formulations of our AstaPure brand,” explains Efrat Kat, Director of Marketing and Sales at Algatechnologies. “We’ve been supplying our AstaPure line to beverage manufacturers in the Japanese market for several years.”

The astaxanthin emulsion is produced under patent-protected, ISO- and GMP-certified technology. It is a ready-to-use formulation and can easily be introduced into liquid-filled capsules or any other water soluble application.

Its unique technology is based on food-grade, 100%-water-soluble micelles, allowing the production of a highly stable product form with respect to pH and temperature. The micelles have a diameter of approximately 30 nm.

“We believe this new product perfectly suits the food and beverage industry since the quality of our product was approved by leading companies in Japan, companies known for their rigorous examination and strict quality-control processes,” adds Kat.

The AstaPure® line also includes a 10% astaxanthin oleoresin, 2.5% astaxanthin beadlets, 2% astaxanthin vegetarian beadlets, cold-water-dispersible beadlets, 3% astaxanthin powder and 4mg astaxanthin capsules (supplied in bulk). All products can be used in multiple forms of dietary supplements, cosmeceuticals and functional foods.

Algatechnologies is a leading manufacturer of natural astaxanthin and the only supplier using entirely closed cultivation systems, totally exposed to the natural sun-light. Moreover, 100% of Algatechnologies’ products are manufactured using super-critical CO2 technology, obtaining 10%   astaxanthin in oleoresin form, with no solvent extractions. Algatechnologies holds Kosher, Halal ISO 9001/2000, HACCP and GMP international accreditations.
