Chitosan

Chitosan is available in several qualities with differing degrees of deacetylation, viscosity, molecular mass, and purity.
Especially, due to our production being able to control the parameters of Chitosan from batch to batch, it is now possible to capitalise on the excellent variety of its beneficial properties so that products with consistency and same quality can be developed.
