Algatechnologies Introduces Highest Content AstaPure® Natural Astaxanthin

Kibbutz Ketura, Israel— April 7, 2014, Algatechnologies Ltd. (“Algatech”), a leading manufacturer and supplier of natural algae astaxanthin announces the launch of AstaPure® 20% astaxanthin oleoresin. This content of astaxanthin exceeds any available in the marketplace.

“The new, advanced product allows our customers to offer much smaller, friendlier sized capsules without changing or reducing the astaxanthin dosage,” explains Efrat Kat, Director of Marketing and Sales at Algatech.

This innovative product is sourced from a rich astaxanthin biomass developed at the Algatech facilities. The oleoresin is then produced utilizing an advanced CO2 extraction technology that enables delicate extraction without the use of organic solvents, keeping astaxanthin’s natural bioactive properties intact.

“The combination of high quality and high concentration in astaxanthin products, plus extended shelf-life, is the perfect solution for natural astaxanthin inclusion in a variety of formulations,” adds Kat.

Algatech is a global biotechnology company specializing in the commercial cultivation of microalgae. The company recently announced another doubling of its production capacity for the AstaPure brand, following an investment of US$20 million in its facility in the Arava Desert.

“This launch of high astaxanthin content oleoresin is in line with our strategy to add value to our customers by  developing advanced product forms as well as new active ingredients utilizing Algatech’ unique technologies” says 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% astaxanthin oleoresin; 2.5% and 2% astaxanthin vegetarian beadlets; 3% 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.

Algatech holds Kosher, Halal ISO 9001-2008, HACCP and GMP international accreditations

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.
