Valensa International to Commercialize Algal Scientific Algae-Based Immune Health Ingredients in U.S. Human Health & Nutrition Markets

Valensa International announced that it has reached an agreement with Algal Scientific Corporation (Plymouth, MI USA) to commercialize Algal's PureAlgal™ branded ingredients - whole dried microalgae (Euglena gracilis) and purified beta-1,3-glucan – in the human health and nutrition markets. Valensa is ready to offer these algae based ingredients to its customers in various channels like Natural & Health food stores as unique, well differentiated algae ingredients and also as part of its Immunum™ formulations. These products have a strategic fit into Valensa and further reiterates its leadership status in the microalgae business with existing products like Zanthin® Natural Astaxanthin Complex (extracted from Haematococcus pluvialis grown in Chile), Parry Organic Spirulina & Organic Chlorella. PureAlgal™ Euglena gracilis is a golden yellow powder produced from US-grown, non-GMO Euglena gracilis that is free of allergens and contains about 50% beta-1, 3-glucan along with numerous micronutrients, minerals, and vitamins. Algal Scientific also produces PureAlgal™ Beta-Glucan 95% through a water-based, non-solvent, and low temperature extraction process to create the highest purity beta-1, 3-glucan available on the market. Valensa has conducted in vitro pilot studies with both ingredients and plans to develop a full-scale, gold-standard clinical trial in early 2017. Valensa will use the Algal Scientific ingredients in a series of formulated dietary supplement products, including as a component in its 'greens' product lines, such as those containing Parry Organic Spirulina and Zanthin® Natural Astaxanthin, to offer immune health support.
