This breakthrough innovation completely changed the perception and the potential applications of this class of biopolymers

Vegan chitosan – For the entire world of consumers

20 years ago, KitoZyme patented a process to manufacture on the industrial scale chitin and chitosan derived from fungi. This breakthrough innovation completely changed the perception and the potential applications of this class of biopolymers.

The non-animal, non-GMO, non-allergenic source of chitin allows KitoZyme’ s customers to propose Nutraceuticals, Supplements or Medical Devices to the global population for various diets or foods preferences: vegan, Kosher, Halal….

Clinical and scientific developments

Over the years, KitoZyme has built a very strong data package to support its products and its customers’ marketing campaigns. Published placebo-controlled clinical trials to show efficacy, state-of-the-art in vitro studies to explain the mechanism of actions are available to support all brands in their developments of honest yet efficient weight management products.

New horizons for a healthier and a greener planet

Besides its great presence in the Nutraceuticals and oral Medical Devices, KitoZyme has also been a pioneer and a trend-setter in the winemaking industry. Based on those successes, the company is now putting on the market new versions of its chitin derivatives and chitosans to further contribute to a healthier and a greener planet. The biotech based in Belgium is now proposing specific biofongicides for crop protection, but also a specific range for Personal Care, Home Care and Cosmetics, being used as film-former and encapsulation polymers.
