AstaReal astaxanthin attains halal certification

April 11, 2017
AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com

The AstaReal Group has announced that it is now offering Japan-made natural astaxanthin ingredients produced by Fuji Chemical Industries Co., Ltd. that are certified by the Japan Muslim Association. This halal certification enables manufacturers to formulate products with the benefits of natural astaxanthin for the rapidly-growing halal markets in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore, using the AstaReal® range of astaxanthin bulk ingredients.

The JMA, founded in 1952, is the oldest Muslim organization in Japan. Its rigorous certification assessment program ensures AstaReal’s cultivation and production of natural astaxanthin complies with stringent halal requirements.

With this certification, the parent company says that AstaReal will be better able to pursue its goal of providing products that support health and well-being to people around the world.

AstaReal produces natural astaxanthin from the Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae cultivated at facilities in Sweden and the USA. The AstaReal Group, which produced the world’s first commercial astaxanthin in 1994, has sales offices in Singapore, Australia, India, Japan, Sweden and the USA.
