BIO ingredient research

By applying the latest bioengineering technology to the development of microbes for industrial use, Daesang has achieved groundbreaking results in the production of amino and nucleic acids as well as microalgae. Based on this progress, Daesang is focused on the development of promising, high value added ingredients.

By developing strains for industrial use and obtaining world-class fermentation and purification technology, bio ingredients research has dramatically improved productivity when it comes to nucleic acids and amino acids like glutamic acid, lysine, phenylalanine, arginine, glutamine, histidine, etc. Continued research on functional amino acids has also allowed Daesang to expand its range of products and solidify its lead as an amino acid-specialized company. Furthermore, it commercialized chlorella, plant-derived DHA, and other ingredients for the first time in Korea using independently developed microalgae culturing technology. Recently, Daesang is stepping up efforts to develop functional ingredients from microalgae.
