Alpha Chitin is mastering management and growth of the BSF (Hermetia Illucens) larvae, in its subsidiary SFly Farming. Rearing techniques allow maximizing chitin production within the larvae.
Krill used by Alpha Chitin comes from Antartica. Its fishing is highly scrutinized and subject to many regulations. Fishing techniques and technologies finalized by our partner …
Alpha Chitin currently investigates the production of its own resource for a chitosan focused mycelium. That production will be fully traceable, and the chosen mycelium …
CHITOSAN MEDICAL & PHARMACEUTICAL APPLICATIONS

Molecular weight adjustable between 2 to 1250+ kDa, with a very narrow and highly controlled mean value around setpoint. Nanocrystals and nanofibrils available from krill source. Deactivation of allergens and endotoxyns.
Bioresource based on Black Soldier Fly larvae and fungi. Purity > 75% for fungi based, > 90% for BSF larvae. Molecular weight adjustable between 50 to 250 kda.
CHITOSAN AGRIFOOD & TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS
Bioresource based on Black Soldier Fly larvae and fungi. Substrate for wine purification and control, production of food grade biofilms, multiple textile applications, food complement / supplement (fat scavenging). Technical specifications of final products fine tuned upon application and customer requests.
CHITOSAN INDUSTRIAL & ENVIRONMENTAL APPLICATIONS
Seed encapsulation and protection, water purification and filtration, natural biocide…
Alpha Chitin has developed the ability to produce high quality / highly repeatable oligo-saccharides owing to the specific process used for adjustment and control of molecular weight of our final products. Our process respects most characteristics of the chitosan molecule, except for the molecular weight, and helps provide superior oligo-saccharides quality. Technical specifications fine tuned upon customer request.
Alpha Chitin manufactures bespoke chitosans and oligo-saccharides. Our process is vertically integrated (from resource to chitosan) and allows a full control of final specification, and a very high repeatability between production batches.
