However, most glucosamine is manufactured from shellfish. This production process uses large quantities of chemicals and creates significant waste, causing much harm to the environment.
GlucosaGreen® is the world’s first commercially available glucosamine to be produced by a revolutionary, patented direct fermentation technology. Instead of using shellfish as the raw material, GlucosaGreen® utilises glucose from non-GMO corn. The technology very efficiently transforms glucose into glucosamine. GlucosaGreen® is a proprietary ingredient and generates only two percent waste compared to shellfish processing. It is vegan-friendly and uses no animal sources.
