Importance of Heavy Metal Controls in Astaxanthin Production

Warnings about the negative effects of heavy metals in foods, beverages, and dietary supplements have been in the media for years. Informed consumers are apprehensive about these safety concerns, and want evidence that the products they consume are safe. Metals such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury pose a threat to human health.
