Israel’s Algatechnologies Ltd. has achieved Non-GMO Project verification for its 100% organic Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae powder and astaxanthin oleoresin.

“Consumers are actively seeking non-GMO products, so having the Non-GMO Project verify our line in accordance with its strict standards provides our partners added value on top of the existing USDA organic, GMP, kosher and halal certifications,”​ says Hagai Stadler, CEO of Algatech.


The company made its name with high quality astaxanthin derived from Haematococcus pluvialis​ microalgae grown in a labyrinthine network of glass tubes in Eilat in Southern Israel. The tubes enable the company to precisely control the process, eliminate contaminants and produce high purity, nutrient-packed astaxanthin in an ultra-efficient way.

The algae - which starts out green - is fed CO2 and nutrients, but turns red (which means it's producing astaxanthin) as a stress response to the sunshine. It's then harvested and used primarily in the dietary supplements market.

“The most critical stage affecting the quality of algae-derived products is when the algae biomass itself is produced,”​ says Stadler. “The importance of the purity of the biomass is essential for making clean-label products. One common characteristic of algae is that it absorbs almost all the components of the medium in which it is grown. Therefore, to produce high-quality biomass, the water, equipment, process, all nutrients, and even the air must be clean, strictly controlled and protected along the entire production chain.”

“We are committed to provide the finest, pure microalgae solutions on the market. These international accreditations of GMP, organic USDA, ISO 9001/2015, HACCP, non-GMO and NAXA reaffirm this,”​ added Stadler.
