“Cyanotech’s water dispersible natural astaxanthin powder is unique – we’ve formulated with a proprietary blend of plant fibers,” stated Dr Gerry Cysewski, Chief Scientific Officer and CEO, Cyanotech. “Our innovative proprietary blend creates the ideal delivery system for this type of technology. The purity of the formulation eliminates the need for extra unnatural compounds that are found in microencapsulation technologies,” added Cysewski.

Hawaiian Astaxanthin Water Dispersible Powder is free-flowing and dispersible in either hot or cold water. It’s suitable for drink powder mixes, ready to drink beverages, teas, fruit juices, as well as carbonated beverages.

Cyanotech says the flavour of the powder is neutral and similar to other plant-based proteins but can be blended with various flavour profiles to reach the desired taste. Additionally, Cyanotech’s astaxanthin powder offers an alternative for consumers that do not like to swallow supplements. BioAstin 1% and 2% powders are certified gluten free and Kosher, with other certifications pending.
