Food Field


As consumers' demand for healthy, natural, and functional foods continues to grow, marine natural products (MNPs) are becoming a new resource for the food industry due to their unique nutritional and bioactive ingredients. The ocean is rich in active substances, such as seaweed, fish oil, marine collagen, chitosan, and marine polysaccharides, which are currently widely used in various foods and beverages. In addition, MNPs are also used in additives, flavorings, etc., providing the food industry with a wealth of raw materials and options. CD BioSciences focuses on the research and development of marine natural products and is committed to transforming the rich resources of the ocean into innovative solutions for the food industry.

Marine natural products can be used in the food industry.Figure 1. Marine-derived bioactive compounds and their major functions. (Senadheera T R L, et al., 2023)

Main Bioactive Substances

  • Seaweed and its extracts
  • Fish oil
  • Marine collagen
  • Chitin and chitosan
  • Marine polysaccharides
  • Marine proteins
  • Marine minerals
  • Marine enzymes


  • Thickeners and Stabilizers

Alginate has excellent thickening properties and can be used as a thickener and stabilizer for food to improve the texture and taste of food. We use a variety of advanced technologies to provide alginate development services, including alginate extraction, purification, physical and chemical property evaluation, chemical modification, bioactivity evaluation, and characterization. Finally, standardized alginate is produced and applied to various food products to improve their consistency and taste, and increase the flavor and taste of food.

  • Natural Pigments

Phycocyanin is a blue pigment extracted from cyanobacteria, which has good stability and bright colors. It not only has a bright blue color, but also has good heat resistance and light resistance, and is suitable for the processing and manufacturing of various foods. The phycocyanin we can provide can be widely used in various foods and beverages such as beverages, candies, ice cream, and cakes, adding bright colors to the products, and enhancing the visual appeal and market competitiveness of the products. At the same time, we also provide customized formula development and technical support to provide customers with the most suitable phycocyanin products and solutions according to customer needs and product characteristics.

  • Nutrition and Health

Unsaturated fatty acids are important nutrients required by the human body, including various types such as Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9, which have an important impact on cardiovascular health, brain development, and immune system function. Our platform uses advanced technology and equipment to extract and purify unsaturated fatty acids from marine organisms to ensure the purity and stability of the products. According to customer needs and product characteristics, we further provide unsaturated fatty acid bioactivity assays, chemical structure analysis, and synthesis services.

What do We Support?

  • MNPs Extraction and Purification

We provide technologies and services for extracting key ingredients from marine organisms, including extraction and purification of seaweed polysaccharides, marine collagen, marine proteins, etc.

  • Customized Solutions

According to customer needs and market trends, we offer customized development services such as seaweed, marine proteins, unsaturated fatty acids, etc., to develop seaweed with specific functions and nutritional ingredients for customers.

  • Functional Evaluation and Verification
