Cyanotech® Corporation launches BioAstin® water dispersible astaxanthin powder

Cyanotech® Corporation, a world leader in microalgae-based, high-value nutrition and health products, announces its launch of BioAstin® Hawaiian Astaxanthin® in a new delivery form, water dispersible powder, available in both 1% and 2% concentrations. The Nation’s #1 brand of Astaxanthin*, BioAstin, is now offering their new water dispersible powder to the bulk ingredients market worldwide.

BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant derived from natural Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae grown on the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. Cyanotech is the most vertically integrated producer of naturally grown Astaxanthin, and its new powder is no exception. From pond to powder, Cyanotech offers the world’s first and only water dispersible powder produced all in one location ensuring the highest possible quality. Astaxanthin is a superior nutrient for formulations and condition specific products as it has been clinically studied to help support cardiovascular, eye, immune, skin, and joint health, as well as recovery from exercise†.

“Cyanotech’s water dispersible natural astaxanthin powder is unique – we’ve formulated with a proprietary blend of plant fibers,” stated Dr. Gerry Cysewski, Chief Scientific Officer and CEO, Cyanotech. “Our innovative proprietary blend creates the ideal delivery system for this type of technology. The purity of the formulation eliminates the need for extra unnatural compounds that are found in microencapsulation technologies,” added Cysewski.

BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin Water Dispersible Powder is free-flowing and it’s dispersible in either hot or cold water. It’s ready to be incorporated into drink powder mixes, ready to drink beverages, teas, fruit juices, as well as carbonated beverages. The flavor of the powder is neutral and similar to other plant-based proteins but can be blended with various flavor profiles to reach the desired taste. Additionally, Cyanotech’s astaxanthin powder offers another alternative for consumers that do not like to swallow supplements. BioAstin 1% and 2% powders are certified Gluten Free and Kosher, with other certifications pending (Halal, Vegan, I-Gen, Certified for Sport and Detox Project).
