Algatechnologies Introduces Highest Content AstaPure® Natural Astaxanthin

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 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 bring added value to our customers by  developing advanced product forms as well as new active ingredients utilizing Algatech’s 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.

The TGA, Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration, Granted Anlit GMP Certification

Anlit has been granted GMP certification by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), the governmental authority charged with regulating therapeutic goods for the protection of public health and safety. The certification was granted to Anlit’s Kidi Bites, an innovative supplement format designed specifically for children.

The TGA is world-renowned for its high standards of quality, requiring food supplement producers to conform with the rigorous requirements imposed on pharmaceutical production.

“Anlit approached this certification as a strategic move, designed to bring our products to the global forefront of quality and excellence,” says Shai Karlinski, Marketing VP for Anlit. “Anlit had to follow a fast learning curve, forging beyond the former food supplement paradigms and adopting new pharma concepts and processes.”

Attaining the TGA stamp of approval is part of Anlit’s strategy for pursuing the highest and most stringent quality standards, paving the way to partnerships with global pharmaceutical companies that are seeking diversification of their product portfolio with unique food supplements. “Thanks to this important certification, Sanofi Aventis, Australia, just launched two of our innovative Kidi Bites supplements for children — Multivitamin and Calcium — in Australia,” notes Karlinski.

Anlit’s Kidi Bites Technology produces tasty supplements focused on kids’ preferences and providing the essential health benefits children need. The delicious matrix, with chocolaty flavor and texture, overcomes children’s typical reluctance to taking nutritional supplements.
