Sealife is a two in one texturizer and dietary
fibre, made from 100% pure pulverized gracilaria seaweed. It is not just
a simple seaweed fibre but is a novel food ingredient giving soluble
and insoluble dietary fibre, enhancement to mouth feel and texture and
high content of functional minerals
Sealife is organic, chlorine free, gluten free and GMO free. It’s soluble fibre component can be dissolved in warm water to form gel up on cooling. Sealife is also an alternate source of iodine and potassium. It is a clear label friendly food ingredient without requirement of E-number.
The benefits of Sea Life are
1. High content of dietary fibres
2. Good source of functional minerals
3. High water binding capacity
4. Easy dispersion in water
5. Gluten free and vegetarian friendly
6. Natural taste and odor.
Chitin is the second most abundant natural biopolymer in the world, behind only cellulose. It is also the most abundant naturally occurring polysaccharide that contains amino sugars. This abundance, combined with the specific chemistry of chitin and its derivative chitosan, make for the array of potential applications.
Chitosan is a fine off white, odorless Powder extracted from Crab and Shrimp Shells and its derivatives. It has a wide array of commercial and biomedical uses. It can be used in agriculture as a seed treatment and biopesticide, helping plants to fight off fungal infections. In winemaking, it can be used as a fining agent, also helping to prevent spoilage. In industry, it can be used in a self-healing polyurethane paint coating. In medicine, it is useful in bandages to reduce bleeding and as an antibacterial agent. Itis also used to help deliver drugs through the skin.
We supply Chitosan at varied deacetylation values (80 – 95%) and mesh sizes (35 to 100). We also supply High Bulk Density Chitosan (HBDC) ideally suitable for encapsulation, having a bulk density of 0.8gm/ml and 0 mesh size to 100 Mesh.
Sodium Alginate is also called Algimic acid and it has a variety of uses in the food, pharmaceutical and textile printing industries. It is also used in the making of dental impression material as its means of gelling. Sodium Alginate is safe as an ingredient in manufactured foods.
It is a white or yellowish powder, is almost tasteless and odorless and is extracted from the cell wall of brown algae, where through binding with water forms a viscous gum and is used 2 increase viscosity and also as an emulsifier.
