Medical Grade Pure Chitosan Powder for Drug Application / Pharma Grade Chitosan
We Beyond Biopharma supplies Pharma grade Pure Chitosan Powder for drug Application purposes. Our chitosan powder is extracted from the shells of shrimp and crab. Chitosan has many functions in various areas.
In the field of medicine and health care products, chitosan has the functions of improving immunity, activating cells, preventing cancer, lowering blood fat, lowering blood pressure, anti-aging, and regulating the body environment. The European and American academic circles are known as human body except protein, fat, sugar, vitamins, The sixth largest element of life outside minerals. Can be used in medicine, health care, food.
In the field of medical functional materials, chitosan can be used for membrane materials, carriers, adsorbents, fibers, medical materials, and the like.
It is widely used in foods and can be used as additives, preservatives, thickeners, stabilizers, gelling agents, binders, clarifiers, adsorbents, etc.

The advantage of our Chitosan
1. Pure source of Material. Our chitosan is produced from the shells of unpolluted deep-sea Alaska crab. The pure raw materials make the quality of our chitosan superior.
2. GMP Production: Our Chitosan is produced in the GMP facility with GMP quality management system.
3. Well established QC laboratory testing: Our chitosan is tested in well-established laboratory before we release the material to you.
General description of Chitosan
Chitosan is a liner polysaccharide produced by extraction from shells of crab. It is off powder with a low bulk density. However, in order to make chitosan better for application in food supplements, we improve the bulk density to be around 0.6g/ml.
Chitosan is insoluble in water or alkali solution. But it is soluble in inorganic acid like diluted hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, and most organic acid.
The purity of chitosan is calculated on the deacetylation degree. The deacetylation degree is from 70% to 95% depending on the different application of chitosan.
Chitosan is widely used in many industries such as the Food, Food supplements, Medicine, Cosmetic, Sewage treatment, textile, leather and etc.
In this page, we mainly talk about the application of chitosan in Food Supplements industry for weight loss purpose.
