Dunaliella salina Powder (7% β-carotene)

Catalog Number
DS002
Description
Dunaliella salina is a type of halophile green micro-algae especially found in sea salt fields. Known for its antioxidant activity because of its ability to create large amount of carotenoids, it is used in cosmetics and dietary supplements. Few organisms can survive in such highly saline conditions as salt evaporation ponds. To survive, these organisms have high concentrations of β-carotene to protect against the intense light, and high concentrations of glycerol to provide protection against osmotic pressure. This offers an opportunity for commercial biological production of these substances.
Application
(1) Raw material for β-carotene; (2) Nutritional enrichment of food products; (3) Used in cosmetics.
