Marine Oligosaccharides

In addition to marine polysaccharides, Alfa Chemistry also offers marine oligosaccharides, which are shorter chains of sugars with unique bioactive properties. These oligosaccharides have gained increasing attention in the food, agriculture and medical fields due to their specific physical and chemical properties. Alfa Chemistry’s range of marine oligosaccharides includes Chitosan Oligosaccharide, Alginate Oligosaccharide, Agar Oligosaccharide, Carrageenan Oligosaccharide and Marine Oligosaccharide Standards.

Marine Bioactive Peptides

Alfa Chemistry further expands its range of marine biomaterials with a selection of marine bioactive peptides. These peptides exhibit various bioactivities including antioxidant, antimicrobial, antihypertensive, anti-human immunodeficiency virus, anticoagulant, anti-obesity and anti-diabetic activities. Alfa Chemistry’s range of marine bioactive peptides includes Oyster Peptide, Sea Cucumber Peptide, Fish Collagen Peptide, Tuna Peptide, Abalone Peptide and Antarctic Krill Peptide.

Marine Oils

Marine oils are another valuable resource offered by Alfa Chemistry. These oils, derived from marine organisms such as fish and algae, are rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Marine oils have gained popularity for their potential benefits in cardiovascular health, brain function and skin health. Alfa Chemistry’s marine oils, including fish oil, krill oil, cod liver oil and algae oil, are of high purity and quality, making them ideal for use in nutraceuticals, functional foods and dietary supplements.

Microalgae Powders

Microalgae are microscopic plants that thrive in marine environments and are known for their high nutritional value and bioactive compounds. These powders can be used in various applications such as food, fuel, feed and pharmaceutical industries. Specifically, Alfa Chemistry’s microalgae powder production offerings include: Chlorella Powder, Dunaliella Salina Powder, Haematococcus Pluvialis Powder (Astaxanthin), Nannochloropsis Oculata Powder, Spirulina Powder, Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae Powder, Odontella Aurita Powder and Blue Spirulina Powder.

“We believe that the diverse marine biomaterials available from our company offer exciting opportunities for researchers and industry to explore novel solutions in biomedicine, cosmetics and nutraceuticals,” said Alfa Chemistry’s marketing director. “By harnessing the potential of marine resources, advances can be made in these fields, leading to improved health and wellness.”
