Divi’s Nutraceuticals presents astaxanthin solutions at Vitafoods Europe

Published: 29-Apr-2024

The company will exhibit a variety of ingredients for a range of applications, such as carotenoids, astaxanthin and vitamins for bolstering health and wellness

Divi’s Nutraceuticals, a company specialising in the manufacturing of vitamin and carotenoid ingredients, will present its novel astaxanthin solution, AstaBead, at Vitafoods Europe in Geneva.



On 15 May at 16:00 (New Ingredients Theatre, F184), the company will present AstaBead, highly concentrated beadlets of sustainable natural astaxanthin, resulting from the combination of Divi’s and Algalif’s expertise. 

The astaxanthin oleoresin provided by Algalif utilised in this ingredient is created with 100% renewable energy, and is naturally sourced from microalgae. 

Divi's transforms this oleoresin into exclusive, easy-to-handle AstaBead beadlets that contain 5% astaxanthin – the highest concentration available on the market – allowing smaller tablets and hard-shell capsules. 

AstaBead also functions well in nutritional bars and fortified powder drinks. 


Carotenoids for every application

Divi’s will also introduce new additions to one of the broadest portfolios of beta-carotene on the market, with specialty forms that meet the requirements of every application. 

The carotenoids can be used in supplements, as well as to fortify or colour a variety of liquids and dry foods and beverages. 

To meet consumer demand for clean labels, Divi’s portfolio includes products which contain less additives. The company is able to produce silicon dioxide-free spray-dried products with the same performance and characteristics as conventional spray-dried products, resulting in nanoparticle-free ingredients. 

Moreover, these products contain no synthetic antioxidant, no palm oil and no added sugar, while simultaneously maintaining stability and texture.


Vitamin variety

As well as its carotenoid solutions, Divi’s will exhibit its Vitamin D3 500 SD, a high potency spray-dried powder providing 500,000 IU per g. 

The manufacturing technology ensures constant particle size distribution and an optimised concentration, resulting in excellent content uniformity in applications such as premixes. 

As specialists in the formulation of fat-soluble vitamins, Divi's offers a comprehensive and unique portfolio of vitamins A, E, D2 and D3 in different concentrations and forms suitable for a variety of liquid and dry applications, whether food supplements, fortified foods or beverages.
