Algae for Pollution Control

Other Novel Applications


Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid, which performs a limited form of photosynthesis in Brown Algae and other heterokonts. It is responsible for the brown or olive-green color of these algae. Fucoxanthin absorbs red light to perform photosynthesis.

Fucoxanthin derived from Phaeophytes is used for coloring food products brown. It is well researched upon for its fat reducing properties.

Algae Strains that Produce Fucoxanthin

Fucoxanthin is produced by brown algae (Phaeophytes). The pigment is produced in abundant quantities by the following edible brown algae.

Laminalia japonica

Undaria pinnatifida

Eisenia bicyclis

Sargassum fulvellum

Hizikia fusiformis

Production and Extraction of Fucoxanthin from Algae

Commercial-scale production of fucoxanthin is often found difficult because fucoxanthin is produced by only a few edible brown algae that are refractory to harvesting on a mass scale.

The process of separating fucoxanthin from algae includes the following steps: 

Applications and Health Benefits of Fucoxanthin

Fucoxanthin shows biological activities such as anti-obesity, anti-oxidant, antitumor, anti-diabetes and anti-inflammatory properties.

  • The anticarcinogenic activity of fucoxanthin is reported to be the strongest among xanthophylls and carotenoids and is shown to prevent liver and skin cancer due to its antioxidant activity, and breast and prostate cancer through induction of apoptosis.
  • Fucoxanthin exhibits anti-obesity effects through stimulating the expression of mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 in white adipose tissue.
