Asta Technologies produces astaxanthin for the nutraceutical market in the form of powder (3%) and oleoresin (10%).
Astaxanthin is a cartenoid abound in nature, e.g. in algae, salmon fish and shellfish. It plays a major function as an anti-oxidant agent in living organisms. Due to its unique chemical structure it spans the entire width of the cell membrane and protects both the sides and the interior of the cell membrane, efficiently neutralizing free radicals.
Astaxanthin is used as raw material in many food supplements for cardiovascular and anti-aging applications.
The Company produces astaxanthin from the Haematococcus pluvialis algae, a frequently used source of astaxanthin.
Asta's products excel in quality and purity due to its algae production technology that enables meticulous control of parameters.
