Maxicrop is manufactured using a well established hydrolysation process to produce a consistent extract, in solution.
Products manufactured by cold processes – as adopted by other manufacturers – do not produce liquid solutions.
While it is claimed that this process is less likely to damage active ingredients, there is no evidence that Maxicrop’s process damages or reduces betaines content. On the contrary, a hot alkaline process is essential to remove any carbohydrates and sugars bound tightly into seaweed cell walls.
Cold processes also provide less concentrated products, with actives – finely divided algae – held in suspension and thus more likely to block spray nozzles. Maxicrop’s process provides the user with a true solution.
