Hi Europe also heralds the launch of Betatene® 10% WDP, which has the highest concentration of algae-sourced natural beta carotene available in a water-dispersible powder.

In addition to its benefits as a natural food colorant, Betatene® 10% WDP is a source of natural carotenoids and provitamin A.

Scientific studies suggest a range of health benefits for Betatene® from eye health to immunity. A safe source of vitamin A, research also shows that beta carotene may offer a multi-faceted protective effect against the sun's harmful rays.
