METHOD OF PREPARATION
EntoChitin is produced during Inseco’s insect protein production process. Chitin is extracted as a by-product and further refined using chemical processing methods, carefully dried and packed in a specialized product laboratory.
Directions for use
Chitin has applications in cosmetics, anti-microbial food packaging, agriculture and pharmaceuticals. Chitin is a biodegradable material and therefore can be used in industrial applications as an eco-friendly alternative.
