AstaREAL® Astaxanthin Product Range

All commercial sources of natural astaxanthin produced from Haematococcus pluvialis contain active esterified astaxanthin complex and a very small percentage of other carotenoids. The only pure form is synthetic astaxanthin which is manufactured from petrochemical sources. This is not normally accepted for human use with respect to regulatory or consumer acceptance and therefore, synthetic astaxanthin is limited to a color additive in aquaculture.

AstaREAL® astaxanthin is offered in a variety bulk forms to suit your final product. Whether you are in the nutritional, food, or personal care industry; we have the right product and support for you. Furthermore, the AstaREAL® strives in maintaining the highest levels in quality, stability, potency and service. These help differentiates us from another.
