Poor quality material attracted by artificially high prices is flooding the chondroitin market, according to UK-based supplier Gee Lawson.

We are seeing a great deal of poor quality materials in the marketplace as tests have shown a blend of porcine and bovine mixed in with the chondroitin sulphate 90 per cent shark which is then being passed off as pure shark chondroitin,”​ the company said.

The glucosamine, chitin and chitosan market was also being affected by a poor shrimp harvest due to adverse weather conditions. The company said it had “already experienced the non delivery of product” ​but noted US demand remained buoyant.
