Water Soluble Low Molecular Weight Chitosan Powder / Oligosaccharide Powder
We are able to supply water soluble low molecular weight chitosan powder, also know as oligosaccharides. The molecular weight of this type of chitosan is low, and it is soluble into water. It is suitable to be applied in dietary supplements products.
Chitosan oligosaccharide, also known as chitosan oligosaccharide and oligochitosan, is a kind of polymerization degree obtained by degrading chitosan by special biological enzyme technology (also reported by chemical degradation and microwave degradation technology). The oligosaccharide product with a molecular weight of ≤3200Da is a low molecular weight product with good water solubility, large functional effect and high biological activity. It has higher solubility than chitosan, is completely soluble in water, and is easily absorbed and utilized by organisms. It has 14 times of its function as chitosan.

The advantage of Low Molecular weight Water Soluble Chitosan Powder supplied by Beyond Biopharma
1. Small Molecular weight: The molecular weight of our oligosaccharide is lower.
2. Water soluble: Our chitosan is soluble into water, which will be more easier to be applied in food supplements production.
2. Good quality raw materials. Our chitosan is produced from the shells of unpolluted shrimp and crabs. The pure raw materials make the quality of our chitosan superior.
2. GMP Production: The water soluble Chitosan is produced in the GMP facility with GMP quality management system.
3. QC Laboratory. We have QC laboratory to test the materials before we release the materials to you.

There are many types of chitosan which is usually called Water soluble Chitosan, see below:
1. Chitosan soluble in water
2. Low molecular weight chitosan (or oligosaccharide) soluble in water
3. Chitin which is soluble in water
4. Carboxymethyl chitosan soluble in water
5. Hydrochloride-soluble chitosan hydrochloride
All of the above five substances can be called water-soluble chitosan, but only the first one is the true water-soluble chitosan (WSC). It is soluble in water, has a high molecular weight, and is a general chitosan, that is, only acetylglucosamine residues and glucosamine residues in the molecular chain, and the difference from ordinary chitosan is only the degree of deacetylation.
Application of Low Molecular Weight Water Soluble Chitosan in food supplements:
Dairy Supplements: As an activating factor of intestinal probiotics (such as Bifidobacterium), it enhances the absorption of calcium and minerals.
Condiment: As a natural antiseptic product, it replaces chemical preservatives such as sodium benzoate.
Beverage: It is used in functional drinks such as slimming, detoxification, and immune regulation.
Fruit and vegetable: The film is preserved, and the film layer has permeability and water resistance, and has antibacterial and antiseptic effects.
