MORE THAN JUST SHRIMP
Chitosan, a natural polymer created from the chitin found in shrimp shells, is used in medical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic applications. Using products from trū Shrimp, trū Chitosan is the premium choice for all scientific research.
We offer medical-grade chitosan for your scientific research needs.
trū Shrimp’s patented Tidal Basin™ technology allows for constant collection of molt tissues, peels and tails throughout the shrimp’s growth cycle, a sharp contrast to the rest of the shrimp industry today. Due to the controlled habitat, consistent diet and avoidance of harsh chemicals, the raw material produced is as superior as the shrimp itself.
By using trū Shrimp material and a vertical integration model, we have complete physical and genetic traceability from the hatchery to the final product. Having records of every step, source and process ensures all of our products are up to trū Chitosan standards of excellence.
the trū Shrimp Companies are proud to offer USA-grown shrimp, products and materials. Our FDA-registered facility uses Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP) to produce products that meet or exceed USP-grade specifications.

Naturally low in heavy metals, ash content and endotoxins, our Chitosan’s high repeatability provides the ultimate consistency from batch to batch. This medical-grade chitosan will take your scientific research to the next level by incorporating an ecofriendly process that has a multitude of uses and benefits, elevating the medical community one use at a time.
