Algalif, Icelandic producer of pure, high-grade, natural astaxanthin products from microalgae, received top honours in the NutraIngredients-Asia Awards, with Astalif astaxanthin selected as the best Healthy Ageing Ingredient.

“This prestigious award emphasises our ongoing commitment to quality and demonstrates that Astalif is a superior healthy ageing ingredient, providing support for numerous age-related health concerns, including heart, brain, eye and skin health.”

The NutraIngredients-Asia Awards judges evaluated ingredients based on demonstration of customer demand, solid scientific evidence, range of applications, commercial success and innovation. Winners were announced at a special awards ceremony held 10 September in Singapore.
