Springbio, XINCHANG Branch

Springbio, XINCHANG Branch, built a new plant and set up three sets of 65M3 fermentation equipment at XINCHANG and mass production of API intermediates -for Lycopene, Beta-Carotene and Astaxanthin from Phaffia rhodozyma.

Do you want to create something that your existing customers will love, or something that will attract new customers? Ideally, Our new products will do both. After market research ,we developing some new products by fermentation.

Human Nutrition: We will offer Lycopene 5%;10% beadlet by fermentation 10 tons per month from Nov.2021 . And will supply Beta-Carotene 10% 20% beadlet by fermentation 20 tons per month from Nov. 2021.

Animal Nutrition: We can offer Phaffia rhodozyma Astaxanthin 0.4% 20tons per month.

Now we are on of the biggest suppliers of Phaffia rhodozyma Astaxanthin in China.


New market opportunity

The red yeast Phaffia rhodozyma has possible application as a component of diets for use in aquaculture. Its primary value lies in its content of astaxanthin, which is much higher (5–50 times) than that found in crustacean meals. When fed to rainbow trout, the deposition of astaxanthin in the fish flesh was dependent on the proper preparation of yeast cells before their inclusion into the feed. No astaxanthin was nutritionally available from intact yeast. If P. rhodozyma was mechanically ruptured its pigments were transferred to the flesh of rainbow trout, coloring it salmon-pink. The most efficient deposition of astaxanthin in trout occurred when the cell wall of P. rhodozyma was partially removed by enzymatic digestion. The proxiamte composition, amino acid content, fatty acid profile, and astaxanthin content were determined for P. rhodozyma. When grown under the conditions used in this study, P. rhodozyma has a low protein content (∼25%) and a high total lipid content (∼17%) compared with most other microorganisms.

Phaffia rhodozyma strains are described which produce greater than 3,000 ppm astaxanthin based on dry yeast solids when cultivated in a volume of nutrient medium of at least about 1,500 liters and containing in excess of 4 percent, preferably in excess of 6 percent, dry yeast solids. These and other strains are cultivated by an improved fermentation method comprising extending the maturation phase of the fermentation by one or more various techniques including exposing the yeast cells to a low-intensity light, slow feeding the cells with a rapidly metabolized energy source e.g. glucose, and replacing the rapidly metabolized energy source with a slowly metabolized energy source, e.g. gylcerol. The cells of these strains are incorporated into animal feeds, particularly feeds for salmonid fishes, to impart or enhance the red pigmentation of these animals and products made from these animals.

Springbio was founded in 2013 and is now part of CNC (founded in 2003), will become the one of the leaders in the creation of feed additives and food nutrition . Springbio invites you to discover more at
