‡ Product distributed by Akina, Inc.
Chitosan is a linear polysaccharide composed of randomly distributed β-(1-4)-linked D-glucosamine (deacetylated unit) and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (acetylated unit).
This natural polymer derived from crabshells and shrimp can have its properties adjusted, most notably water solubility,
by controlling the number and order of acetylated units and deacetyleated units.
