100% Natural Good Quality Chitosan Food Grade And Chitosan
Chitosan is a linear polysaccharide composed of randomly
distributed β-(1-4)-linked D-glucosamine (deacetylated unit) and
N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (acetylated unit). It is made by treating
shrimp and other crustacean shells with the alkali sodium
Chitosan has a number of commercial and possible biomedical uses.
It can be used in agriculture as a seed treatment and biopesticide,
helping plants to fight off fungal infections. In winemaking it can
be used as a fining agent, also helping to prevent spoilage. In
industry, it can be used in a self-healing polyurethane paint
coating. In medicine, it may be useful in bandages to reduce
bleeding and as an antibacterial agent; it can also be used to help
deliver drugs through the skin.
More controversially, chitosan has been asserted to have use in
limiting fat absorption, which would make it useful for dieting,
but there is evidence against this.
Other uses of chitosan that have been researched include use as a
soluble dietary fiber.

In Medicine, health care products:
Chitosan is useful in promoting tissue growth in tissue repair and
accelerating wound-healing and bone regeneration.
Chitosan also can be incorporated into hydrogels and microspheres
which demonstrate large potential in delivery systems for drugs,
proteins or genes.
In Health Food:
Chitosan has a strong positive charge helps it bind to fats and
cholesterol and initiates clotting of red blood cells.Also can be
used as food additive.
- Cholesterol-lowering effects.
- Fiber and weight loss effects.
Chitosan is an ecologically friendly biopesticide substance that
boosts the innate ability of plants to defend themselves against
fungal infections, also can be used as soil improvement agent, seed
treatment and plant growth enhancer.
In Cosmetic Industry:
Chitosan's strong positive charge allows it to bind to negatively
charged surfaces such as hair and skin which makes it a useful
ingredient in hair and skin products.
