FORT COLLINS, Colo., Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Solix Algredients, Inc. announces that Solasta® Astaxanthin has received the "Approved Quality" seal certification from ConsumerLab.com.
Solasta® is a natural astaxanthin extract produced from Haematococcus pluvialis (microalgae). It is non-GMO, vegetarian, extracted in the USA, and complies with the stringent United States Pharmacopeia (USP) specification.
The ConsumerLab.com seal is the latest confirmation of Solix Algredients' ongoing efforts to provide the industry with high-quality, natural algal ingredients. Earlier this year, Solix was certified by UL Registrar as meeting the Natural Product Association's (NPA) requirements for compliance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for dietary supplements.
Solix Algredients also extended its Solasta® Astaxanthin product range with a new product tailored for easier handling and processing efficiency. The new 10% natural astaxanthin oleoresin product, called Solasta® 110, provides improved flowability due to its lower viscosity.
"Our new Solasta® 110 extends our range of astaxanthin products providing greater operational flexibility and cost savings to the makers of dietary supplements, nutritional beverages and personal care products," said Charlie Bowman, Chief Commercial Officer.
"USP quality, supply chain speed and flexibility, combined with our capability to formulate Solasta® in a variety of carrier oils and other ingredients, enable our customers to differentiate and increase their sales," explained Bowman.
